We hopped into a cab and took a ride to The Bund. It was so foggy today that almost none of the skyscrapers were visible. We asked, this time it was for sure fog, and not smog.
Once we were done at the Bund, Michael took us to Nanjing Road’s famous shopping area.
When we were done there, it was onto the Jade Buddha Temple. Turns out, it was a special day for Buddhists. Throngs of people were there to pray to Buddha. A lot of them were burning items to send special messages to Buddha in the smoke. The smoke is considered the messenger to the heavens.
It was decorated beautifully though!
We got back to the hotel, exhausted, but needing to stay awake. In order to do this, we decided to walk to the local mall where we found an arcade. Cam put a couple of coins in and immediately won. He’s pretty sure his Christmas shopping for his sister is done!
