Lakeland District Debate Competes in China: Days 7-8: Shanghai

Our time in Shanghai culminated in some great sightseeing and we took this picture from “The Bund” across the Yantzghe river and pointing toward the financial district of Shanghai.

Before touring, however, we started our time in Shanghai at the Associated School of Fudan University.

We began that visit with a great lunch in the school cafeteria.

On our second day in Shanghai, we visited Shanghai High School International Division. Students from more than 35 countries attend high school here.

We spent most of our time discussing debate, including the topic we debated in Hangzhou and that they were about to debate in the Shanghai tournament.

After the debate, we went to visit the financial district of Shanghai (pictured above) and had the chance to explore the Pearl Tower.  We were able to get a great view from the 263rd floor of the tower, which featured a glass floor for easy viewing!
