We had some business at the bank, and decided to go out for dinner afterwards.
First we tried an Italian restaurant where we had eaten just after it opened in the fall. It was an empty shell.
Then we tried to find a recommended Japanese restaurant in the SML Center. The whole third and fourth floors were blocked off.
We ended up in Tianzifang at Glismatten, for Swiss fondue.

Celebrating our anniversary today!
Having our usual luck at finding restaurants, we ended up at the wrong end of the Binjiang Dadao/Riverside Promenade, along the Huangpu River on the Pudong side. (By the way, Pudong means the east side of the Huangpu River, and Puxi means the west side of the"Pu.")
