A Flood in Shanghai

We traveled to Shanghai for the week-long National Day holiday. While there, we heard that 82 million people would be traveling during the holiday. Our first night there we encountered masses of people like we had never seen before. Walking down the main street, Nanjing Lu, was like float tubing down a slow river…you just kinda bobbed along with the flow. Rivers of people flowed both ways down the street spilling down alleyways and side roads, filling shops and restaurants, and coming to complete standstills when meeting other main streets. It was pretty incredible.

Here’s a few highlights from our Shanghai excursion. For the full album click here.

The church on Duoyun Street was built in the 1920s to look like a typical Chinese pagoda.

Shorel eating at Papa John’s which operates 3,000 restaurants in 20 countries and now has 14 locations in Shanghai, one in Suzhou and five in Beijing. No delivery to Yichang, though.

We visited the Shanghai Aquarium. Shorel loves aquariums. Here he is watching a shark pass over him in the underwater tunnel.
