Today was the day I truly felt we got to see Shanghai. To begin the day off we took the bus into downtown Shanghai along side the river and we were told to explorer for a hour and half. A group of us found a nice little restaurant along side the river. We walked up to the top and got some coffee and relaxed with the crew. After walking around we headed to the restaurant to have lunch. As soon as we sat down we met some people from the United States. There was an old couple who are originally from California and they have been to China 5 times. After lunch we began our journey toward the Pearl Tower. This tower was awesome because of how high it was. We took an elevator to the observation level. The elevator was probably the fastest elevator I have ever been on. It felt like we were flying to the top. We went down another floor which was my favorite part. There is a walk way outside that wraps around the building that had see through floors. It was so cool to be able stand on this see though floor and feel like you are so high above the ground. After the Pearl Tower we had dinner then we went to the river and got on a boat. This boat drove down the river and we got to see all of the sky scrapers light up at night.
