We’ve been busy entertaining lately. Arlo’s Aunty Sarah arrived on Thursday night and we’ve spent the past few days hanging out together. First up was hanging ornaments from family on the tree.
Then there was lots of getting to know Aunty Sarah.
And exploring Shanghai – Geoff, Sarah and Arlo on The Bund.
We took Sarah to my favourite place (that I know of so far) in Shanghai – Tai Kang Lu.
Sarah left for Beijing on Sunday morning, so we wandered around the Old Town – and bought FABRIC!!! This cost half the price I would have paid in Australia, and I didn’t bother to bargain down (next time I will…).
We also saw little, little birds on skewers
Lanterns hanging in the trees
And escaped the crowds and had a caffeine fix at the same time.
(Arlo gets an empty cup, not a coffee – yet).
We had such a great time (though short) with Sarah and can’t wait to see her, and the rest of her family, again in a few months.
