July 26 was a great day to unwind: no more concerts to prepare for, just a full day for the Philharmonia members to explore Shanghai, shop, and enjoy each other’s company before everyone departed for various parts of the world. The day began and ended with organized activities: a trip to Shanghai Museum in the morning, and a Farewell dinner at the hotel at night. (The dinner will have a separate blog).
