This was my second time going to Shanghai. The first time (read here), we went with a bunch of friends as a quick tour of China. On that trip we tried to do all the touristy things. This time, however, it was more for family (Jay still has quite a bit of family in Shanghai). My main goal was to just get lost and explore.
Motel 168. NO.873 Xin Cun Road. We stayed here because it was close to Jay’s grandma’s apartment. We walked to her apartment every morning to have a small breakfast and coffee before deciding where to head out for the day. The motel was okay… nothing special. The bed was flat and hard and the walls were thin. We also got a little flyer under our door every evening advertising escort services. Does that gives you a little hint about the clientele in this motel establishment?
- Like I said, we did a lot of getting lost and exploring Shanghai. I used this trip to practice my photography skills. I’ll just add the pictures here for you see.
I enjoyed this Shanghai trip so much better than the first. It wasn’t a rush, rush, go all over the place feeling. We basically hung out at Grandma’s house in the morning, then headed out to different parts of Shanghai and just walked. We walked all over the place with no map or anything. It was great!
