We were headed back to Shanghai today from Suzhou. In the morning we took a taxi to the train station and attempted to get tickets back to Shanghai. However, it turned out that the next available train to Shanghai was not for another 3.5 hours, at 12:20. So we walked around the area around the train station looking for some food. First we had a breakfast of what tasted like a pizza crust and some bread thing, and then we had lunch a little bit later at a restaurant.
Finally we got on our train back to Shanghai, it turned out it was an older train with no assigned seats because there were far more people on the train than there were seats.
Back in Shanghai, we went to look for a hotel. We asked around a bit but it was much busier today because it was a weekend so we were not able to get the same price we did before at our last hotel. We went to one place that said 300 Yuan, but decided to look around more, but when we went back to that place, the 300 yuan room was gone and now we had to pay 360 yuan. Oh well, the room turned out to be super huge with tons of unessecary floor space and a good view of Nanjing Rd.
It was also raining again in Shanghai so we got all wet as we walked around looking for a bakery to get a snack.
After that we went up the 3rd tallest building in the world, we only could go up to the 55th floor though and the view was a little clouded. Then we walked around a bit more and took the subway back to our hotel.
Sorry we're not able to update that often, its difficult to find internet places and takes a long time to write the updates and upload pictures. But we will continue to try our best!
