Just a quick note to let everyone back home know that we got here safe and sound, after a very long flight starting in Charlotte early this morning. The 14 hour plane ride went pretty quickly, once we took turns getting out of our seats; above is a picture of Jenny Geyer trying to get Jessica Maguire and Megan LeDell to do the electric slide with her. The cab ride from the airport also took us a long time, because of Friday night traffic here in Shanghai; below is a picture of tired-looking Rob Heppenstall and Rachel Thomason sitting in the back of our cab, on the way to the Shanghai YMCA hotel. After freshening up, we will be meeting in the lobby at 8:00 pm to start exploring the city, and have our first meal in China! I’ll post more pictures after we get back.
