China Day 25 (Shanghai)
Today was our only free day in Shanghai. After going to the club on Thursday with Joe and the group, I had decided to take Friday off from the party scene. I'm undecided on what I will do today but I'm thinking I'll go out one last time while I can here in China. In Shanghai, it seems like there are many more foreigners than anywhere else that we were in China. In Beijing, Tianjin, and other places the Chinese would get pretty excited even if we said "Ni Hao" to them but they seem more disinterested here. Shanghai is a huge city, almost too huge, and I think it is kind of intimidating honestly. Another thing I've noticed here is, as Joe was saying, practically everything here is more expensive than in the other parts of China we had been to. I kind of wish that we had more time in China so I could get to know the country, the people, the culture and more better, but I will be glad to be back in the United States as well to see my family and friends. Tomorrow we fly back to the United States. This trip has been nothing less of spectacular and I'm very glad to have meet everyone I did here. Dr. Dahui Li did a great job planning this trip.
