Sept. 13 - Shanghai

We are real party animals - I have to tell you - we give up THIS
The Night Life in Shanghai
to go to bed at 9!!! But it's working - we are starting to feel better all day now - not so tired!
Today was a lot more sightseeing.
We went to this incredibly tall building -
Yep, I am referring to that tall pointy one there - we went to the top ball - that little one WAY up there. 270+ stories - and then we got out of the elevator and stepped on this glass floor to look down. NOT my thing - I am deathly afraid of heights - but once again, I stretched myself.Those are Joe's lovely feet - he was MUCH braver than I - but I eventually took a deep breath and stepped out - hope I don't look too scared!Then we went on a river cruise. The sights were amazing - what a city this is!!
We went to see a silkworm/silk factory....
Joe got in on some of the silk stretching action - they wanted to hire him! Watch out Interstates!
Our greatest feat for the day - aside from lunch!?!?! (Just kidding!!) Well it had to be crossing 8 lanes of traffic - no guide. We just follow the natives!!! But we are a bit proud of ourselves since pedestrians DO NOT have the right of way in China!Tonight is the Shanghai Circus Acrobats show - that should be fun.
We - Joe, Becky and the Sea Baby (the mascot of the upcoming Shanghai Expo 2010) send our greetings....

When you are harvesting your crops and forget to bring in a bundle of grain from your field, don't go back to get it. Leave it for the foreigners, orphans and widows. Then the LORD your God will bless you in all you do.
