It feels like ages ago that we went to Shanghai, probably because it really was. Who knew it would take me this long to share the pictures? (Can I keep blaming this procrastination on pregnancy?)
I loved the city, it was great to be in a big city with lots of green space and parks (something we miss the most here in Manila).
We stayed at the Pudi Boutique Hotel, and I highly recommend it! It was amazingly comfortable and convenient to a lot of restaurants.
We pretty much walked everywhere from our hotel, Shanghai wasn’t nearly as crowded as I was expecting. And seeing trees everywhere was quite the novelty after living so long in Manila.
Believe it or not, despite being pregnant and dying to pee, it’s amazing your body’s capacity to hold *just a little longer* so you can avoid a smelly squat toilet (I’m leaving Asia in a little over 3 months, and have been successful in avoiding them completely! It helps that they’re not the norm here in the Philippines).
It was a short trip, but we had a great time! I definitely hope to be able to visit again someday!
