The First Random 24 hours in Shanghai
Ni Hao! I arrived in Shanghai finally after 11:30pm Sunday night! I missed the entire day in the atmosphere somewhere. I heard we flew over the North Pole because its the quickest way to China. Fancy! 13.30 hours to Beijing…I think my flight to China was the shortest out of everyone.
We get to the location on this foggy night and the front gates are locked. We are like Oh No…What if we were the only two fools who bought into this farce program! -___- I was sick. So our cab driver went across the street and asked and he found us another entrance. Thank God…we spoke no Chinese–he was just so nice enough to help us to where we needed to be.The security then pointed us to where we needed to be..basically he said make a right then a left. WTH? So i pull out my handy dandy flashlight and we go looking for our building. We walked up the ally and found the Faculty Club! Thank GoD and is greeted and taken to our rooms. I didnt get into my room until about 3am didnt go to sleep until almost 5am and had to be up by 8am!
As of right now I am pooped! Exhausted. For breakfast I was turnt down by the french fries. For lunch they had a much better selection and for dinner we went to this weird restaurant where they did a performance for us. Dinner was pretty good. I am horrible at eating with chopsticks…and too think! I am too lazy to wait that long to eat. It takes too long. I was full after eating like 2 things of bak choy and some noodles and some soup. Soup was the easiest thing. They gave us a SPOON! =) [good thing I brought my own utensils while I’m in the luxury of being by myself!
