Shanghai II

We arrived back in Shanghai on Thursday morning after some good fortune at Hangzhou meant we caught a much earlier train than expected. Having checked back into the Mingtown Etour (in the same room as before), we went to a proper local place for soup dumplings again. They've become a bit of an obsession.
Later that evening we headed to the "Captain's Hostel" for rooftop beers overlooking the Shanghai skyline at dusk. Another stroke of luck meant it was "Happy Hours". While quaffing our two for one big beers we got chatting to an American couple from Miami, and ended up going for dinner at a local restaurant, where the food was good and cheap.

We finished off the evening with a stroll back to the hostel having had a very successful day,
