Day 9

Shanghai

sunny 68 °F

China fact #8 - If you think it's NOT meat, it is... and if you think it IS meat, then it's not the meat you think it is... NO EXCEPTIONS

Okay so today was pretty boring and tame. Kelsey and I went with the random college group that also went on this trip. We visited the Chinese stock exchange.... which is a room filled with empty chairs and a cute little board with flashy Chinese symbols all over it! That was terribly boring because there was nothing to see! All the college kids are business majors, so they talked about the stock market for around 30 minutes, while Kelsey and I had NO IDEA what was going on.

After that we had to drive for 3 hours out to the Shanghai Voltswagon factory. That was slightly interesting. Sadly, I've already seen all that kinda stuff on tv multiple times, so it was all old news to me. We only spent an hour there, since our bus ride was so long (it was pointless to me).

Dinner consisted of spicy spicy SPICY food... so even though there was ONE plate of non-meat stuff for me to eat, it was too spicy for me to eat it. Thankfully I begged them to bring some rice, so I got a plane bowl of that.

When we got back to the hotel, I used up the last of my Yuan (except the few bills I'm keeping for funzies) at the gift shop. I bought a shit ton of candy and yummy drinks (and a panda!!). Lol I feel like a bad person, but I haaaad to get rid of my yuan before I left China!

OMG WE LEAVE FOR HOME TOMORROW!!! <3

Anyway, I may get internet again tonight, use up the last 10 yuan I have or something. We'll see....

P.S. GREEN TEA POCKY <3<3<3

I AM SOO BLOODY JEALOUS!! Even your boring day sounds awesome. Also, if you don't know what kind of meat it is, you probably don't want to know...
