Except for the technical difficulties apple had, she did very well and gave very good information about Shanghai peoples park. Once out of the park the pictures got a lot better., and apple continued to give us good information about the area.

Great tour with Apple today at the People's Square after she had problems with WiFi in the People's Park but she gave us a very interesting tour. Loved her telling us about the "dating"! Thankyou so much
