Collin and Instarted the day with a visit to the gym. The treadmills and ellipticals had large screens. Collin had never run on one sonIngave him a wuick treadmill lesson. Of course the one I demonstrated on was all in Chinese, but he hopped on one that was in English. We had a courtyard garden view for our run: lovely.
Then it was off to Shanghai Railway Station to have glasses made. Three floors of frames and optical shops: so many choices. All of the Disney folks here see Summer, so we did too. I of course loved these:
I ordered bifocals (the black pair), distance glasses (white frame) and perscription sunglasses.
How much would you pay for three pairs of perscription glasses plus a pair of plus Ray Bans (for Collin)?
I bet you guessed high. I paid less than $150. I may visit Coin, Michael, at Science & Tech for readers too. Coin is only a stop away from our apartment. Shanghai is full of friends' recommendations.
After glasses, we navigated the metro to Century Park. Oh, the air: perfumed! Violets and cherry blossoms and pansies and tulips and poppies and bamboo and willow--newly leafed in spring green.
We wrapped the afternoon up with market stops and then returned home to meet the guys for burgers at Blue Frog. Monday it's two for one burger night.
The burgers rival Clermont's Crooked Spoon.
I had "the Gourmet" which was topped with avocado, tomato, lettice, lime, cheese, basil-ish mayo and a roll of prosciutto.
Collin had a Montana which sat tall topped with two onion rings, bacon and bbq and fully dressed with lettuce, tomato,and pickle.
