Day 2

On our second full day in Shanghai, we headed a market in the French concession to try a number of different restaurants and shop.  Afterwards, we explored the French concession with our lovely guide, Mickey. We saw Zhou Enlai’s home, the planning space of the Chinese communist party. As well as a French-Chinese park and examples of housing developments in Shanghai. Throughout the tour, we learned about Shanghai’s history of refugees, multicultural communities and their influence on architecture and politics. To end the night, we enjoyed a large hotpot dinner and fought over the last pieces of dessert. Spicy!
