Saturday – Arrival in Shanghai

Friday morning we left the airport at 10:15 CST. We arrived in Shanghai Saturday at 3:00 PM. The flight wasn’t actually too bad; it didn’t seem as long as it really was. Dan and Sai picked us up. We drove back into town, which seemed like a long drive. Only Chinese can drive in China, so Dak has a taxi company that they use frequently. No one in their right mind would drive here; it seems like all of the signs and road markings are merely suggestions.

We got dropped off at our hotel and got settled in and showered. The hotel room is fine; but the bed seems like it’s just a box spring and they forgot the mattress. We were told all of the beds were this hard.

Dan and Sai took us to a nice Chinese restaurant a few blocks down from our hotel. In the Chinese fashion, we ordered many small dishes and shared everything. The food was very good. The dumplings were probably my favorite. Then we went to Maloney’s, an American pub that they hadn’t been too before. It was a bit loud and we decided to go to another place, which the Always café. I started nodding off at the table, so everyone finished their drink and we went back to the hotel.
