Last night, our good friend Beth arrived from Minnesota for a visit. We're so excited to get to show her around some of our favorite sites and to venture with her up to Beijing next weekend. China must be excited to have her here, too, as the weather was the best we've had in months today. We took advantage by having a very full day, starting with a neighborhood tour, then heading to Nanjing Road and the Bund, then to Yuyuan Old Town, then Taikang Lu, and finally ending with dessert at a bakery in Xiantiandi. Whew!
The first picture is of Beth munching on a cucumber. I took her to our local wet market where one of the vegetable vendors I frequent was so excited to see a new face that he insisted that we both take a cucumber (for free) and peeled them right there for us to enjoy. The second is of the three of us on the newly restored Bund, with the PuDong skyline in the background.
Can't wait to see what we get up to next!
