The YWPS group, Mrs Lam, Ms Chan, Ms Ho and I, arrived at the beautiful city under the gorgeous weather at around 4 pm, Canadian time, on 29 April. We headed straight to our hotel for check-in and had our first meal together at a nearby restaurant. Judging from the food we couldn't tell if we had gone overseas as the Shanghainese dishes were so well done! No one seemed to be affected by the jetlag yet as we finished our dinner smoothly.
The huge wholesale store opposite, "Costco", attracted our attention and we had a brief visit there. I have a feeling that I will be buying stuff there for students when it is time for souvenir hunt later.
We will surely have a better taste of the city tomorrow as the tour unfolds itself. Time for a rest. Stay tuned and enjoy life, wherever you are!

p.s. I am appointed as the photographer of the tour and thus don't be surprised if I'm not in the pictures!
