LEE A. WOOD

Zhao Jia Lou is an ancient town in the city/province of Shanghai, district of Pujiangzhen.

About a half hour by bus from outside our apartment in PuDong took us to Sanlu Hwy, and the corner of Shen Du Hwy.

A five minute taxi ride on Shen Du Hwy. took us to Zhao Jia Lou.

We only took the taxi because it was raining otherwise we would have waited for another bus.
