Shanghai (6) - Movies, Little Face

June 18, 2010:

We spent a little bit of time down by the Bund because I had to exchange some money, but because it was SO hot and sticky outside... in the mid-90s and HU-mid!...we finally decided to go see a movie.

We went to the Chinese restaurant in the hotel for lunch before we did anything. Angie had the Hairy Crabs... I'm not kidding... I went with a safe Pad Thai just because it was so nasty outside hot and humid in the high 90s...



Then we cleaned ourselves up and went back out into the open to go see a movie. The movie we ended up seeing was BACK in the French Concession, which was fine with us because we really liked that area...
We ended up seeing this movie called Shanghai that had John Cusack in it and was beautifully filmed.

Before we went in, we ran into a tour group... yes all dressed alike... taking pictures of this building...NO IDEA what it was though.

After the movie we walked around a little bit... nice to see the Shanghai firefighters keeping things in tip top shape...




We stopped and grabbed a beer then at a random restaurant in the middle of a shopping district, down the street from Louis Vitton... 





We ended the day by going to this restaurant called Little Face... the owners used to have a very popular place called Face Bar in the French Concession but it closed after a dispute about the rent I believe... they also have places in Beijing, Bangkok and Jakarta. I recommend them if you're ever in any of those places.
