At this point we have taken the 15 hour flight to Shanghai.
Taken the one hour train to Hangzhou.
Taken the train back to Shanghai.
And trained to Beijing(5 hours)....all in 4 days.
When we came back from Hangzhou we spent a little bit of time walking around the ancient city.
So. Many. People.
Loved. Every. Minute.
I'm not sure you can see me in this picture.....
but it demonstrates the amount of humanity that was there with us that day.
|I'm the one with the backpack. Just wanted to clear that up.|
Trip 1 to China I was mildly freaked out by the food.
I remember trying to decide if the orange juice was safe to drink that first morning.
Oh how the tide has turned.
I would have completely eaten any of the deliciousness that the vendors were selling if not for the 42 omelets I had eaten at the breakfast buffet.
Speaking of breakfast....
I grabbed one of these.
It looked innocent enough.
It was fried....which.....come on....
And it was right next to the spring rolls, which gave it an immense amount of street cred in my book.
So I dug my fork in to take a bite......
And this popped out.
A ventricle of some sort.
I apparently still have some standards left.
There was of course also the option of a duck at 6am with my coffee.
Which sounded oddly delicious.
And then there was the shopping.
Which I have no words for.
So I'll just show you a couple of pictures and leave it at that.
