^^the Bund at Shanghai before dusk^^
^^duh, I had to take an instax.^^
We survived our first week of teaching little kids! It's exhausting but they are a d o r a b l e and fun to teach. I wanted to end the week right by going to Shanghai for a couple of days; it's a 30 minute bullet train ride away from our town here in Suzhou so right after school on Friday we left for the big city.
By the time we got to Shanghai it was night time so we quickly walked to The Bund, a stretch of amazing old and new buildings; in the 1920's most of these buildings were pricey banks similar to Wall Street in New York.
We skipped dinner and went straight to dessert at the M on the Bund, a fancy restaurant owned by an Australian. When Tate and I walked in we immediately felt underdressed (oh, and you should have seen the waiter's face when we said we didn't have a reservation, haha). We ordered a platter of assorted desserts and I can easily say it was the best dessert I've ever had. Starting off the weekend right in Shanghai...
