Singing to Amrbos and Fendrich while racing along Shanghai’s elevated highways…this is how Patrick and I started his family’s tour of our city. If there is anything they learned about life here, it’s that anything goes. The rest of the week was consumed by market-hopping: baby clothes market (for Denise’s soon-to-be-born), fake market, fabric market, pearl market, electronics market, fresh market, flower market…you name it, they shopped it. During breaks from shopping, eating or beauty treatments were in order – hair, nails, massage. A well earned vacation for our Styria group. Patrick and I were especially impressed at how well his aunt & uncle seemed to adjust to their first trip to the Far East. After a whirlwind tour of Beijing, Xian, and Guilin, it seemed the Shanghai was a piece of cake. Or should I say – banana flambee with ice cream!
