Before lunch at a HUGE dining room in the district of Pudong, we were turned loose to walk around for about half an hour.

After cutting through a side street beside the Pearl Tower, and a parking lot, we found the modern, attractive Pudong Riverside Promenade.

There was a constant flow of barge traffic on the river and it was fairly obvious that people were living on them.

The fishing was good there too!
