In the fall of 2012 I went to Shanghai to visit a friend who teaches English in the city. Having her to show me around the city was a great way to spend my few days there, since she knew what I should see and do around the city. She took me to tea shops, great restaurants and to the Bund (one of the main downtown sections of the city). Unfortunately, I did not have the time to go any other places in China, but I am happy that I did get to see the largest populated city in the country. Here are a few snapshots of my time there.
