Walk around the French Concession

When Holly was here we followed a suggested walk in our guidebook. It took us all over the French Concession. It was cool to see that part of town and read about the history. I guess it’s a good thing to be a tourist in your own town every once in a while. We really had a good time but our legs were very tired by the end of the day!

You will always see people flying kites in the park.

This is a Russian Orthodox church. It is not in use anymore.

We discovered that you can go up to the 38th floor and then walk up a flight and out onto the roof! This is on the other side of our building. It seems much, much higher than our apartment!

A interesting fact is that a lot of buildngs do not have the number 4 on any of the floors. Our building doesn’t have a 4, 14, 24, or 34. 4 is a very unlucky number – similar to the Western belief that 13 is unlucky.
