Shanghai metro map
The plan to get to Shanghai was: train from Beijing but all the universum seemed to do everything to make it impossible for us and... it won... we couldnt get on that effin train but we got a plane! saved few hours of travel and lost twice as much for the tickets. Anyway we made it... so it looks like we won against the universum.
On the last day in Shanghai, we make an appointment with Amy again, in order to spend it together:) I told RJ, we have to go a bit earlier coz it's pretty far from our place but the real reason was that i wanted to try the new "line 6". I was not sure if he were in mood to ride metros without any reason (for him it wasnt a reason i bet, but it was for me;)) so we made a huge circle from DongChangLu station over Depinglu and Xizang Lu - all in all 20 stations instead of smooth 5stations ride.
Line 2 (green)
And we had to cheat on the metro Shanghai again, because we hadn't the ticket for that stretch (and we had to exit and re-enter the system at the transfer station) and so i ask the metro staf to let us out and in again - and said them we got lost, that's why we hadnt the correct tickets. They were very friendly, even if we hadn't any chance to comunicate in the same language, but we had hands and legs and map, so i showed them where we were, and where we want to go and it worked. People in Shanghai are much friendlier than in the north:) RJ believes it untill now, that we got lost there... but come on, who would believe me about being lost in metro? So hereby i confess i lied! But it was worth it! :) and we got in time to the meeting with Amy!... well almost in time. She had to wait few mins for us. I'm sorry Amy!
