China!

24 Jun

Original Post: July 19, 2007

We made it to China!  It seemed like a million hours of flight, but somehow, we arrived in Shanghai.  Our luggage filled with American food for Jenny and John also arrived, and I have to say I’m amazed by this since we had 4 (yes FOUR) connecting flights to get here.

So far everything is going well, Jenny and John have a super phat apartment in the Pudong district of Shanghai.  They also have a driver.  Yeah, a driver.  Stoopid fancy.  Yesterday we went to all these crazy specialty stores that I have no idea how anyone ever figures out where they are to begin with, but once someone finds them the word spreads and you can get a little card telling you how to get there. Basically, the driver would drop us off on the side of some random road and we would go down an ally, maybe into some random run-down building (keep in mind there are NO SIGNS that there is a store) and through some doorways and up some stairs and through another random door and then all of a sudden you are in a room full of silk, or purses or jeans, or winter coats or whatever. Totally crazy…
