Our school took us to an acrobatics show on wednesday and it was spectacular. We were all holding on to our seats and you could hear murmurs of worry coming from everyone as they performed one insanely gravity defying act after another. At one point there were seven motorcyclists racing around in a metal ball at the speed of light, how they didn't hit each other was mind boggling. Then about 10 girls we're jumping and climbing in between bikes like it was nothing. Remember all the kids trying to do tricks on their trick bikes, even the best are amateurs compared to these girls. There was one act that I have to confess what my favorite though. It was a couple and they were swinging, and acrobatically dancing in the air held up by two silk bands. It was really beautiful and at the same time terrifying too just wanted them through each other around. It was a great show and after my walk home I was able to take a shower and then I hit the bed like a rock. Shanghai really knows how to take it out of you.
Musicians having fun and playing around at the park. We had to be sneaky, the Chinese don't like it when we take their picture.
The lotus pond, I believe it's Chinas national flower. They are all starting to bloom now so in a week it should be beautiful here.
Sorry this was a long one. It's hard to keep it short since there's so much to see an tell. I'll keep on trying to update though so ou guys can see a bit of Shanghai and experience it with me.
Till the next time.
