Although already there was a previous stage, really we arrived this day at Shanghai, that by necessities of blog there is to structure it of this form. This of now is continuation of which I said the previous day. We had supper and we go course to the river, towards the modern city, Putong, where we raised one of the highest buildings, the Jinmao, that enchants us to all. The 88 floors rise in 45 seconds. Incredible. And the Vista from above is spectacular. It seems of science fiction. And not only towards outside, even inner, he is hollow and watching downwards the reception of the Hyatt Hotel is seen, that occupies all the superior plants of this modern building.

From the famous tower of the television Pearl of East is seen here, with its three so characteristic legs. We give to the return by the viewpoint, taking very many photos and lowered to follow our nocturnal route by the zone of the Bund, that means mud, all the skyscrapers are constructed in enormous cement plates, upon mud. They say that in Mexico a similar technique is used since they are upon volcanic ashes. There we took one from the numerous boats that leave from the Bund and cross the river Huang Pu, is a mini cruise by the river, starting off of the opposite border, the old part for the part this modern one and vice versa. Here we took also innumerable photos, the air it is warm, no longer it is as much warm, and the illusions follow very high. Another habitual thing in all tourist China, the siege of the salesmen by the streets.
As it is happened to you to watch his merchandise or to ask the price to them no longer they take off to you of alongside all the short while, they become a little heavy, but it is his form to be, insistent. In order to finish our stroll at night of Shanghai we went to the French district. An old typically colonial district, that has been rejuvenated and now it is a fashionable place, with very many discs, bars and places where to eat and to have a drink, listening music. A very pleasant site. The pity is that we, with so many hours of trip in airplane and so many emotions could not appreciate it in which was worth..

 


Aunque ya hubo una etapa anterior, realmente llegamos este día a Shanghai, que por necesidades del blog hay que estructurarlo de esta forma.

Esto de ahora es continuación de lo que decía el día anterior. Cenamos y vamos rumbo al río, hacía la parte moderna, Putong, donde subimos a uno de los edificios mas altos, el Jinmao, que nos encanta a todos. Se suben los 88 pisos en 45 segundos. Increíble. Y la vista desde arriba es espectacular. Parece de ciencia ficción. Y no solo hacia fuera, incluso interiormente, es hueco y mirando hacia abajo se ve la recepción del Hotel Hyatt, que ocupa todas las plantas superiores de este moderno edificio. Desde aquí se ve la famosa torre de la televisión Perla de Oriente, con sus tres patas tan características. Damos la vuelta por el mirador, sacando muchísimas fotos y bajamos para seguir nuestro recorrido nocturno por la zona del Bund, que significa lodo, todos los rascacielos están construidos en enormes placas de cemento, encima del lodo. Dicen que en Méjico se utiliza una técnica parecida ya que están encima de cenizas volcánicas acuosas.
Allí cogimos uno de los numerosos barcos que zarpan desde el Bund y recorren el río Huang Pu,  es un mini crucero por el río, partiendo de la orilla contraria, de la parte antigua hacia la parte esta moderna y viceversa. Aquí sacamos también innumerables fotos, el aire es calido, ya no hace tanto calor, y las ilusiones siguen muy altas.
  Otra cosa habitual en toda la China turística, el asedio de los vendedores por las calles. Como se te ocurra mirar su mercancía o preguntarles el precio ya no se te quitan de al lado todo el rato, se vuelven un poco pesados, pero es su forma de ser, insistentes.
  Para terminar nuestro paseo por la noche de Shanghai fuimos al barrio francés. Un antiguo barrio típicamente colonial, que ha sido remozado y ahora es un lugar de moda, con muchísimas discotecas, bares y lugares donde comer y tomar una copa, escuchando música.  Un sitio muy agradable. La lástima es que nosotros, con tantas horas de viaje en avión y tantas emociones no lo podíamos apreciar en lo que valía.
