Marshall Banquet

Last night, we were treated to dinner and a river cruise by Marshall University, the organization that we came here with. We ate at the Seagull Palace on Pudong (the main financial district, across the river from the rest of Shanghai) and then took a cruise along the Huangpu River to enjoy the city's incredible skyline at night. We ended the night on Nanjing Road, one of Shanghai's main shopping streets.
Highlights of the night included the seemingly endless stream of food coming out from the kitchen, the extra-large Tsingtao beers, and Jeff eating a fish eyeball ("for good luck.")

We have another banquet tonight, this time with all of the teachers at our school. It would be easy to get used to this!
Enjoy the pictures here: - but, be warned, there are a lot!


  1. Hmmm ... I want me some of that eyeball!

  2. Logan and I liked looking at these pictures. He said, "Uncle Jeff always takes funny pictures.." He's got that right. We miss you guys. Logan wanted me to tell you that he likes to tell mom, "I'll be pleased to help." That's his new saying. He wanted me to tell you guys that. Have a great weekend.

  3. Eyeballs for good luck? Did you guys pack a lot of Tums, Pepto Bismal or Gas X by any chance?
    Otherwise, the banquet sounded fabulous and hope you enjoy tonight's adventure!

  4. Poor Logan, he'll never be the same watching his crazy Uncle Jeff eating eyeballs!! I'm prety sure the promised "Good luck" is for never being too far from a bathroom.

    Stay well! xoxo Mom
