The Exhibition Center is an older building -- with no heat. I don't think it got about 55 degrees in the building ALL DAY.
At lunch we found a McDonalds. My heart did a little jump seeing the golden arches. It tastes just like it does in the US. We see the McDonalds delivery guy who rides with an oven warmer on his back on his scooter delivering McDonalds.
We visit a convenience store. I’m excited to take back candy & treats for Keller.
We finish the day at the college fair & taxi back to the hotel.

We change clothes & actually braved the Shanghai subway system BY OURSELVES. Helen had given us valuable tips the day before to meet her at Peoples Square via subway. We are proud of ourselves.

After shopping we went to a dim sum restaurant & ate fried rice, wontons, etc. We also ordered this wonderful bread bowl that was good bread diced into chunks and then topped with icecream & whip cream which you dip in sweetened condescended milk & honey. It was rich & good – one of the first real ‘desserts’ we’ve had in China.

Subway back to hotel & check out all our purchases:
|And yes...I did buy a new carry-on to get all the purchases home.|
