Flag of China  , Shanghai,
Tuesday, October 4, 2011

We woke up late after our night out in the clubs.  I found out which stop on the subway was in the city center and I got the travel buddies together.  Once we got out of the subway we walked around the giant Pearl Tower building and took pictures.  I saw the Shanghai Aquarium and decided that I wanted to go inside.  No one wanted to come with me, so I went in by myself. 

The aquarium was pretty good.  I think the one in Baltimore was better.  What I did find interesting though was an exhibit on saving the sharks.  The exhibit mentioned Asia, especially China and Taiwan were killing sharks to eat.  They even separated data as China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan.  It was crowed in the aquarium and some areas felt very claustrophobic.  One of the coolest parts of the aquarium was a section under a giant tank where you would ride on a moving floor and watch the fish swim above your head.

After the aquarium I found a subway restaurant and ate a sub.  It was the first real sandwich I had in China since I got here.  I was pretty good.  After dinner I took a subway to a very popular outdoor shopping area.  It was super crowded and I kept getting asked if I wanted fake watches or bags.  One guy even asked if I wanted a girl.  My phone ran out of minutes, so I searched for a place to buy more minutes, but I couldn't find any.  I went back to the hotel to meet up with my friends and we again went out to some clubs.
