Today was filled with sight-seeing and shopping. We went to the Old Town area of Shanghai, famous for its beautiful gardens and market with hundreds of vendors. When we arrived at the market, the streets were filled with thousands of tourists from all over the world. It was a bit overwhelming being surrounded by so many people.
Once we had survived two hours of this chaos and had some fun along the way bargaining with the vendors, we traveled by bus to the Shanghai Acrobat Circus, among the most famous in the world. The show lasted for an hour and was packed with various groups of performers doing incredible acts with plates, unicycles, bicycles, motorcycles, roller skates, and more. The group enjoyed the show immensely.
We then traveled back to the hotel, and all were free to spend their final night in Shanghai doing whatever they wanted. Tomorrow it's back to the United States.
Our flight departs from Shanghai at 6:00 pm on Sunday, but we have to leave our hotel by 1:30 pm in order to make it on time.
