I have to start by saying I’m proud of myself for blogging my entire Cambodia/ China trip! I’m still needing to blog the Vietnam half of my trip in January! We saw some amazing sights and I really would like to share them someday.
To finish off our trip, Denise and I stopped by Suzhou on the way to Shanghai. We hopped on a really fast train (although I’m told it’s not the fastest) and stopped in Suzhou. It was extremely hot that day but we decided to bear the heat and explore the city. Because it was so hot I wasn’t in a picture taking mood but managed to get a few good ones. That evening we headed to Shanghai and spent our last few days there. Our last night (which happened to be a Saturday) we headed out to one of the popular areas to get some cool skyscraper photos. We walked from our hotel and it was so packed it took away from the fun. We decided to grab a taxi coming back to avoid the crowd but then we realized half of the crowd was also looking for a taxi. Like a pro, Denise ran up to one and another guy tried to steal it from us but we jumped in and shook our head no at him. I felt a little more Chinese in that moment. He gave us a polite head nod as if to say, “I thought you were dumb tourist I could take a taxi from but I was obviously wrong. Well played ladies.” OK, maybe that’s not was he was thinking but I would like to think it is. ha.
I hope you’ve enjoyed my travel photos and I’m looking forward to sharing a few beautiful weddings I’ve shot recently and tons of adorable babies, including newborn twins!
Our last meal in China! The menu had pictures but no English so using my translator app, I figured out the symboal for pork and chicken so we knew what we were sort of getting. Denise got tofu (right), I got pork (left) and we shared some broccoli.
