DAY 7: CANNED CULTURE
Today was the most western day we have had so far on this trip. In the morning we had breakfast and took care of some post show wrap up and went out to the front of the hotel to get a cab. On our way out we ran into a group of young workers who helped us with the show yesterday. They were planning to go to an attraction in Shenzhen called THE WINDOW TO THE WORLD, so we decided to tag along for the day.
When we got there we decided to get something to eat across the street while we waited for the others to show up. We went across the street to a huge mall complex but not before a group of Chinese girls wanted to take a picture with us in front of a half size version of the Louvre. We found a restaurant that seemed to work and I ordered a bowl of spaghetti and meat sauce. It tasted like a can of Chef Boy-ar-dee, but did the trick. We walked around for a bit and ran into the group from the hotel that had been forced inside to get out of the rain. After walking around the mall and realizing that most of the prices were much more expensive that NYC we decided to go see a movie. Harry Potter seemed to fit the bill.
After the movie we went to a great restaurant in the mall where I got my first martini of the trip. I would have gotten a beer but a drink with straight vodka seemed to do the trick.
