Today I got a phone here. It cost me 160 RMB here which is the equivalent to about 25 dollars which is not bad. We then went on a mission to find the black market here. Apparently the market here is huge and you can find just about anything you're looking for. We took the metro, which I think is always an experience, to inner Shanghai. The metro here is very nice though, kind of spacey and very clean. Again like yesterday we searched forever and we found a type of market but I dont think it was what we were looking for. I think it'll take us a while to figure everything out here. It was drizzling but we wet to the Bund anyway just to see it and it was amazing. Pictures don't do it justice whatsoever. I'll probably talk about the Bund more next time when I go again, since the skies weren't very clear today. Then we walked down Nanjing Road which looks just like New York but is forever long. You can probably find anything you'd ever want here. In a way it was overwhelming because there was so much of it. We finally settled in Pizza Hut ( an upscalish restaurant here) had a glass of wine and something small to eat, before we headed back. It was a great day and we saw so much, yet it's amazing to know you haven't even seen half of it.
People's Square, they say this is the center of Shanghai
Beautiful European architecture is seen everywhere in this part of Shanghai.
The Bund- It was very cloudy that night but the view was still amazing. The bottle opener looking building is the World Financial Headquarters. You can walk across the top of it, which is a glass bottom bridge, and they say you can observe the curvature of the earth.
A view from our side of the river. A huge boardwalk lines the river and then shops, cafe's, restaurants, and hotels line the street behind it.

Nanjing Road- Every imaginable store lines these streets.
A couple was dancing in the streets. They were having so much fun.
Well that's it for today. Off to bed for me and hopefully more exploring tomorrow.
Till next time.
