The last things ...

This week has been FULL of last things.  We leave in the morning for 9 days in Southern China and will return to Shanghai for less than a day before we leave for good.  So, we've been trying to soak everything in as much as possible.  Here are a few images of our last things in Shanghai:

Last bike ride (yay for a sunny day Wednesday -- sold our bikes on Thursday)
















































Last time finding a cute, Shanghai cafe on accident


















Last interesting street foods -- I think this is lotus root/flower?









And, also bananas being sold along the road - I love that he has an electronic scale on his cart (most the fruit vendors do!)


Last recycling carts.














Last laundry and teeth brushing on the sidewalks





















Last bird-men carrying their birds to the park to visit with other birds.
Last soccer day with teachers & students.

























Last morning with our students.













Last amazing foot massage at Dragonfly and last time at our school.


















And last of the last things ... I don't know that I'll  ever see a man wearing loafers , slacks and a collared shirt with a blow torch putting on the roof on next door!




























Oops, I lied ... one more. The last time we may see our street at night. It looks kind of pretty this way.

Great pictures :) I'm really surprised the guy left the blow torch on while on the roof?!
