Shanghai Nights - Day 2

We went back to Nanjing Dong Lu at night, expecting a great show of lights and we were not disappointed!  Here we are, the Birthday Twins in downtown Shanghai!

My sister, Cara, was amazed to see her name in lights!  Quite a rarity!

We saw many more dazzling lights as we strolled down Nanjing Dong Lu!

Nanjing Dong Lu ends at the Huang Pu river, "The Bund", where we tried to peer through the fog across the river to the giant, modern buildings.

A couple of tourist riverboats make their way up the river through the fog.

We're hoping for better weather tomorrow, on our last day in Shanghai!  It's warm (about 60 degrees) but fairly smoggy - hopefully it will burn off tomorrow!
