A Shanghai Quickie – Pics Edition

China has banned WordPress, making it extremely annoying for me to post because I have to use the mobile app! While the app is great in that it allows me to circumvent the firewall, it is also more limited in terms of features so I think I’ll have to wait til I get home to post more in depth.

It’s been an interesting trip so far with some ups and downs, but we’ve been having a good time! Here are some pics from our short stay in Shanghai – we were only there for one full day and then we took the high-speed train to Jinan the next day.

Spring has sprung in Shanghai and there’s plenty of pretty flowers to prove it!

I have so many more pictures I would love to share but unfortunately it will have to wait til I am back in the States! Next up, Jinan in pictures!
