I arrived in Shanghai yesterday afternoon. It is really an awesome place from what I have seen. The only problem so far is that no one really speaks english. We wandered around quite a bit yesterday trying to find a place to eat that had english menus...no such luck! The hotel is incredible and as we walked in we had to sign a big poster, have pictures taken and check in. I am trying to update my blog but for some reason the network here at the hotel will not let me even load blogger.com or blogspot. As soon as I can, I will do updates on the trip to the Philippines and getting to Shanghai. Sorry for the delay.
