For our first weekend in Shanghai, well technically second, we had sunny skies and warmer temps. We enjoyed the donuts we'd picked up yesterday at the mall for breakfast and then made our way to the aquarium. I used my iPhone app to show the taxi driver the name and address we wanted to go to and he nodded yes so we all piled in. We get near the aquarium and it becomes obvious that he doesn't know where it is. He pulls over and asks a cop and a bus driver, but neither know where the aquarium is either. Finally another taxi driver gives us directions and we finally make it. The driver was nice, and even stopped the meter when he realized he was lost, a first for me. Turns out my address was wrong. I'm going to have to double check address now before we go out, guess I will be writing a complaint to the person who wrote the app.
We all enjoyed the aquarium, but it was all over in an hour. Lily keeps up a fast pace. We exited in the gift shop, big surprise there, and both kids came home with new stuffed animals. Lily and pink dolphin and Charlie a seal. Not that they need anymore stuffed animals, but at the moment they have so few toys that I couldn't say no, plus they weren't near the cost of souvenirs in an American gift shop.
After the kids and daddy napped, Lucas took them to the indoor play place so mommy could read in peace for an hour. Then it was a walk around our new neighborhood for an hour before we came home.
