China- Shanghai

Over Thanksgiving, we took a 6 day trip to China with another couple from our squadron. It was a bit of a whirlwind since we did 3 cities in those 6 days, but we had a lot of fun and got to see a ton! We started our trip in Shanghai where we spent one day touring the city. We got to see a traditional temple, go to China town (yes, kind of ironic), visited a house built for royalty, attended a tea ceremony and went to a silk factory.  We took almost 1,000 pictures, so this is a very small snap shot of what we did.

Ribbons inside the temple with prayers on them.

Tea ceremony. This is Jasmine tea; each tea ball blooms into a different type of flower.

Peepee boys. These were hilarious! If you soak them in water and then pour hot water over them, they pee. We got 3 of them for free when we left because we bought some other things from them.

These ladies were making a silk comforter.

It started to rain right when we got the Bund, which is a park where you can see the entire city. Picture of Shanghai.
