Today...

Today, I was witness to kites flown in the "No kite fly" area, paid entrance fee to a park on a rainy day, took on the challenge of the obstacle course (which was almost all wood and certainly not be allowed nowadays in an American park), and had a grill-out with some people who seemed to have never before in their lives had a barbecue.

It was great, except for the exhausted feeling I've had since 4pm.

And it all took place just an hour from downtown Shanghai! I spend the day with 2 Austrians, 2 Koreans, 1 from Hong Kong, 1 Massachusettes-an, and 1 I am unsure of, but his accent was a bit British and he looked semi-Asian...

Getting up at 7 on a Saturday to take the subway and walk to a place you've never been before sure can tire one.

Well, I am going to go get some sleep...

Sarahhhh, your posts are great! I am reading them, even if I don't comment. I'm sooo glad you're enjoying China! (I think I'm going there this summer with IV!) I look forward to talking with you about China when you get back in January. I can practice my 4 chinese words on you. :)
