The lights of the Bund from the evening cruise on the Huangpu River.
The neighbourhood of the Central Hotel (Jiujiang Road) in the early morning.
The Bund was only about a 20 minute walk from the Central Hotel
The Riverside 'boardwalk' --across the street from the historic buildings of the Bund
Pudong (literally, the Huangpu River East Bank) home to Shanghai's famous skyscrapers
The early morning is the best time to get a
photo of the Bund Bull without the crowds
trying to pose for photos (like I'm doing!)
"living wall' on the
the flower baskets
for next Spring
It was a bit windy but still the warm weather provided a good opportunity for a Fan Dance practice.
Walking back to the hotel, we passed a few street markets
We returned to the Central Hotel, said
our farewells to Shanghai and then
headed out to the airport for the flight
We met our guide, Johnson Lin and
departed for the 3 hour coach trip to
Lang Shan in Shaoyang County,
