Hello from China my loves!
I have had quite an eventful last two weeks. My coworker and I started our trip in Tokyo and shopped til we dropped for two days. Then we flew to Shanghai and worked for a few more days, drove to a town called Ningbo to work for a few more days, returned to Shanghai and worked even more. Today is my first day off in two weeks. And even at that I've been working from my laptop in bed all day.
I did manage to go to the Expo again (http://en.expo2010.cn/) and buy some crazy fruit from a street vendor. They couldn't tell me the name of them in English, but I guess they come from the lotus plant. I bought some because what if they were the yummiest thing I had ever tried? Even though they looked like spiky miniature dragonfruits, they did not taste like one. They tasted like a raw potato. You win some, you lose some I guess.
I've been eating well, lots of rice and noodles. My plan to work out like a maniac has backfired due to actually having to work like a maniac. Regardless, I think I am going to hit the gym now. And for dinner it's more noodles and maybe a tea from my favorite boba place. Sounds like oodles of fun, huh? Well, I wish you were here. We could watch movies and eat popcorn and drink wine.
Sorry for the zero formatting in this post, I'm e-mailing it as Blogger is banned in China. I'm also headed to Hong Kong tomorrow, promise I'll take lots of pictures to share with you even if it takes me a while to post them.
Hope you are well!
