Shanghai. We zipped through this city. It was the most Western of all the cities in China that we visited. From the architecture to the slightly more comfortable beds to the city as a whole, this felt the most comfortable because it reminded me of the U.S. Of course there were still many, many people out and about.
Our first stop was the Shanghai Museum. I especially enjoyed looking at the jade pieces, as well as other artifacts like the ceramic pillows the Chinese once used. Something that was quite amusing considering how hard the beds were in some of the hotels.

We also shopped along Nanjing Road, which is the main shopping street in Shanghai. It was incredibly crowded. This may it hard to get a real good look at the architecture, which was more European.
