shanghai {part one}

we ended our china trip with four days in shanghai.
i had no idea how HUGE shanghai is. there are over 23 million people living there!
we were blown away. it is one of the biggest cities in the world, next to tokyo.
what a crazy place to be! it was more westernized than beijing, and much more of a business center for china.
we had so much fun and mostly hurt our necks from staring up up up at the tallest skyscrapers!
here is our time at the shanghai museum, the old stone houses shopping district, nanjing road,
the huang pu river, pudong district, the bund, and more. one more post coming your way
of our last night in shanghai, and then the china trip is officially recapped. phew!

    I LOVE Shanghai — my parents are from there and I consider it my second home, and I lived and worked there for a few months during/after college. I would move back in a heartbeat and your photos make me miss it so much!
