Xi'an to Shanghai
16.03.2010 - 16.03.2010
China fact #5 - There are people who know Japanese in China, and if you keep yelling things out in Japanese in the middle of crowds, you're bound to find them.
Okay so today was a pretty good day. The weather was FANTASTIC! Sunny and bright!
The plane ride was fine, I'm getting really used to them. Our new tour guide is WAY better than the one in Xi'an, so I'm happy. Also, she KNOWS JAPANESE... did I say I'm happy.... because I meant I'M FREAKING EXCITED AS HELL XD
But no really she's pretty cool, not creepy like Tony, tho not as pretty as May.
Okay so what did we do today.... not much. We got into Shanghai at around 3pm-ish, and had free time until 5:30 when we went out to dinner. Dinner wasn't anything special, cept that there was a lot of seafood, not that it matters to me cuz I didn't even like seafood BEFORE I was a vegetarian, lol. Speaking of vegetarian... every day I worry more and more they'll forget about me and just not make anything without meat in it. Once even the white rice had meat chunks, bah!
After dinner we went on a boat ride on this river that goes through Shanghai. It was amazing! The city at night is soooo beautiful. If I was waiting to see a city that really looks like China, I've finally found it. There are huge buildings everywhere, and each one has some random and strange lighting scheme. That's what I've always loved about Asian buildings, they have crazy lights that cover the buildings!
After after thaaaat, I came back to my room and had a nice long shower... and now here I am! Lol....
Oh also I finished Pride and Prejudice... which was a fantastic book, it really was... it only makes me want to read everything else by Jane Austin <3<3
Anyway, I'ma go write my blog for yesterday (cuz I fell asleep writing it last night, tehe).... no p.s. message this time guys! sorry, lol
