We took a short walk to the local Metro station and after a few minutes figured out how to buy tickets. Lucky for us there were directions in English. We want to get a Metro card that you can put money on but there didn't seem to be a kiosk for that so we will have to ask others how to get one. It is great how helpful everyone is but a bit annoying that we have to rely so heavily on help for almost everything. Anyway, the Metro was clean and seemed to move faster than the metros we've taken back in the US. I think the kids really enjoyed it though and, it was a lot cheaper than a taxi ride into Puxi would have cost us.
After the book store we walked back to the Nanjin Pedestrian street and grabbed a bite to eat at a place called Yoshinoya. Lucas had a pork dish while the kids and I had chicken, plus an order of fried dumplings and two drinks. It was a bargain at 80RMB or $12.50. I'm really liking this type of fast food. Much healthier than McDonald's or Burger King. The kids liked it for the most part. I'm determined to get them to try new foods while we are here. It's home for a nap now and hopefully a quiet evening.
