Shanghai Tour

We arrived in Shanghai yesterday afternoon by train and then went to the hotel. Today we started the morning off with visiting the Jade Buddha Temple which is very beautiful. The Temple is divided into three sections with the oldest and the most prized Buddha statue in the furthest room from the street. This Buddha is the most prized and very well guarded. It was awesome to see. After visiting the Temple, we went to a silk factory. We were able to view how silk is made from start to finish. It was very fascinating. Then we were taken to an authentic shopping market for some free time. After that we went to the Yuyuan Garden. It was amazing to see where some of the people lived some 400 years ago. Tonight we are going to an acrobatic show. I am really looking forward to it.image
