Blue Mountain Hostel was conveniently located right next to the Luban Road Metro. The hostel had 24 hour showers, thank god, a nice cozy bar and pretty friendly staff. I woke up at 10 am, and took off for Nanjing Lu, the famous pedestrian shopping street of Shanghai. I was here a year ago, and not mush really has changed.
I aimlessly wandered for the next few hours stopping at the end of the street, just before People's Park, where there was a giant Christmas Tree assembled from green Heiniken bottles. I was going to take the T164, 19:52 train to Lhasa tonight, and being too excited, even brought a bit of groceries from home just so i wouldnt have to eat train food every meal time. I was assigned to carriage 1, cabin 7, and wahooo lower berth this time! There were 5 of us in total and none of them (i think) even speak English. Oh its gonna be a boring train ride tomorrow.
