We went back to the fakemarket. R wanted headphones and i wanted maybe a cardwallet. We haggled brutally and properly. I still think we could have gone lower but thanks be the hordes of people who dont, precedent is set. The best way to get em to cave us to walk away tho the t shirt vendor was especially brutal, holding my 100¥ note and then begging more. Its 20 bucks. For a kids t shirt. Get fucking real. I grabbed the note and was headed out the store with both of em hanging off my arms. It was nuts. Good guref. Anyway.

We got dome candies and mochi, and spent most if the day in a grog state.

Tomorrow we pick up our tailoring and soon, home. The amount if work awaiting terrifies. Erk.

We headed off today to the Bund, and Pudong, via the cheesy bund tourist tunnel. (we have video). Wandered around the base of the orient pearl tv tower. Our guidebook suggested an offbeat "sex culture" museum but lo! They have not factchecked it in some time and it has moved far to another oart of the city. Arfhh.


Wandered thru the Super Brand Mall, got lunch. Off to the shanghai world financial tower and in planning, the 100th floor viewing deck.

The elevator ride and lead up was ghastly unnerving and while i didnt fear safety, my utter fear of oddly, being in ultra highrises got me. I got to 94 in near full on panic mode. Its complicated. I dont like feeling 'trapped' in a highrise and by floor 55-60 i was ready to mash a button and kick in the door. Crowded elevator, with floor and meters rocketing up. I damn near lost it.

R went to 100 and i stayed at 94.

Then we went to the fakes market, haggled down for a gorgeous bag, tho i suspect we could have gone a notch lower. It started at 850¥and we got them down to 600¥ (around 100 bucks).

People would run after us to pester for a sale. Yargh. But we are improving on the haggle.

Then home.

And i do love the bag. So im rather pleased.

Its a completely insane city but i kind of dig it. But will be glad to be home, its also been exhausting.
