Xiaolongbao – May 12

May 14, 2012

After our night’s sleep in the Shanghai airport, Trevor and I caught the public transportation into the city and met up with Alex, our new CS host. Once again welcomed so whole heartedly by this super nice young man. Trevor and I had a great day touring aound the area of the city where Alex lives and once again it is a concrete jungle of high rises and masses of people on the streets and scooters and bikes and horns honking! Incredibly though, there is this most beautiful huge park right in the middle of all this. One of the most amazing parks I have seen and many people enjoying the tranquility of this nature oasis. At 6 pm we headed out with Alex to the centre of the city and spent the evening at 3 tourist favourites; the People’s Square; the Bund and Nanjing Road. Spellbinding! We also got to try xiaolongbao, Shanghai’s number one favourite dumplings!
