shanghai

we went to bed last night around 9pm and woke up around 5am.  We all took our time getting cleaned up, hung out in our rooms & then headed to Starbucks.  Apparently, coffee isn't as important to the Chinese because at 9 am Starbucks still wasn't open (insert frowny face).

we weren't sure how this man didn't run into something since he didn't take his eyes off of Piper for several blocks

 Piper entertained the other customers with her unique noodle eating style
we gave this restaurant 2 thumbs up!

we love the metro!
 "roller skating fan guy" was more than happy to pause for a pic
we've had several people asking about what Piper thinks of China -- so far, we've heard "I wuv my China cause I Chinese" about a dozen times.  She's quite the celebrity & keeps telling us she's a "beauty  queen".  We leave for Jinan tomorrow morning.

I'm glad that you're enjoying Shanghai! I took my daughters to the Shanghai Aquarium on Monday for the first time and we thought it was great. Best of luck on the rest of your trip!
