Today was a day filled with both joy and sorrow. For most of the students it would be there last time in China. The day started off very slow due to the point that since it was our last night in Shanghai most of us stayed out really late. Even at that however it was a great day. Joe took us to a very fancy Restaurant to have our last meal. Like all the food we have had in China it was very delicious. After lunch we went to a shopping center where we had one last chance to buy gifts for ourselves or family and friends back home. After about an hour of shopping until we dropped, we got on the bus and headed to the airport. Hear we said our goodbyes to Joe and headed through both security and customs. Once we all got through we went to our gate and waited for our plane to arrive. While waiting for our plane we saw not one but two Airbus 380 which is the Double decker planes that hold over 800 passengers. After about an hour or so we boarded our plane and were on our way back to the United States. The 13 hour plane ride always goes faster when you meet people. Which is what I did, I met Chinese's exchange students heading to the States. We talked nearly the entire ride. When we arrived at O'Hare International in Chicago we had to again go through security and customs. Which was a breeze? What went so good was the fact that when we were on the final plane from Chicago to Minneapolis. Our plane ran low on Fuel, so we had to go back to Chicago and fuel u then head home. We arrived after one in the morning and from there most students went home and went to bed, Thank You Dr. LI for an incredible trip.
Depart for the United States
