Breakfast with the little guy

Oliver and I are usually the first up on the weekends and we enjoy going out for breakfast while the rest of the family is still sleeping. It is a bit hard to find places open before 8 on the weekends. We wandered around a while this morning, eventually found a coffee shop that opened at 7:30. Then after a pre breakfast snack we moved on to Mr. Pancake Plus which opened at 8.  


Pro tip for Angkor Wat

Wake up early to catch the sunrise, but instead of setting up in front of the pool near the entrance with the rest of the people, just walk in and start exploring. You will have the place to yourselves for an hour or two while everyone else gathers out front to get the iconic photograph. Go ahead and skip that (there are tons of examples of that photo already out there) and see what you can find inside. Plus it won’t be so hot that early in the morning so you can climb around without turning into a soggy mess. 



Spread the Bagel on Nanchang Lu makes some great bagels. We walked over this morning and Parke decided to bring Marshy along. She loves going on adventures. Walking in the city doesn’t seem to stress her out at all. Lots of interesting things to smell and lots of cats. 

Bourbon tasting

It is difficult to find decent Bourbon in Shanghai. But this afternoon we had a treat. There was a tasting with a bourbon expert. Parke doesn’t like bourbon so I had to help help with her glasses. Poor me.
