Hello from China!
After a long plane ride on a 747 (first time for both of us) we made it to Shanghai last night. We missed a day somewhere in the air and are now a half day ahead of all of you in the US. We were picked up from the airport and driven to Wujiang, about 90 minutes away. We were told it was a small town, but it really isn't small. We are staying in the guest house of Mr Tang's home. It is above the garage and is really a nice 3 bed 2 bath apartment. We both fell asleep easily (even though the mattress is very firm). This morning we woke up and had breakfast (oh boy: it was a buffet at the hotel, and I wasn't feeling quite adventurous this early in the morning. Maybe tomorrow, and I will take some photos)
Danny had a good therapy session with Mr Tang, and then we went off on a walking tour of the city. There is an outdoor shopping mall close by. You could find just about anything you need...except a size 7 Nike running shoe. (I left mine at home) They had plenty of size 4.5..too bad my parents didn't bind my feet when I was young. Danny also had quite a hard time finding a jacket that was long enough for his gigantor arms! The nice guy went sprinting back to the back of the store and brought back a 3X that did the trick! Here are some photos from the morning.
Here is the lunch we had today at McDonalds. It looks better in the picture than it tasted.
Here are some pictures of our apartment.
Here are some pictures from the outdoor shopping area in Wujiang.
It was interesting that often the girls walk holding hands or arms.
This guy was selling tiny turtles in front of McDonalds . . . I wonder???
