Day 2

It may be hard to believe, but in a city of 23 million people… I feel strangely alone. I need to make friends pronto.

On the plus side, I’ve managed to make 3 successful food purchases on my own. One lady even complimented that my “zhong guo hua” was very good! That made me feel good. I am also very convinced that I have the stomach of a GOD and that Chinese people make the best dumplings ever (sorry Taiwanese people).

Also, no need for amusement park rides in Shanghai. Just hop on a taxi and don’t wear the seatbelt.
