There was a long weekend coming up at that time. Shanghai's weather was not too cold yet. The Expo was still on. The e-passport renewal, visa application and arrangement with the tour provider went smoothly as well. And the trip to that part of the world was a first for me and Jerry. Everything was in our favor, plus, of course, it was my birthday too. The decision to go was almost instantaneous. :)
And so the last 8 posts (links below) are about the sights we were blessed to see in Shanghai. The 72 hours were well-spent and we enjoyed every minute of it. Hopefully, the next chance we get to visit, it will be with the rest of the brood.
Marriott Courtyard Xujiahui
World Expo 2010
Catholic Church in Communist China
Silk Factory, The Bund
On to the next adventure...
