Short post today, as I’m heading out momentarily to Pudong to pick up Trisha. I’m traveling with a driver from the school and Bao, so I’ll be knocking back the Dramamine like it’s my job. She doesn’t know I’m coming, and I can’t wait to surprise her with some beef jerky and oranges (what else says “Welcome to China!” like beef jerky and fruit?). I’m really, really excited to see her.
But of course it’s pouring rain (hasn’t dampened the fireworks though!) and I have to get to Bao’s house for lunch, which means I’m taking the bus for the first time on my own. Crossing my fingers it goes well. Or I at least get some sweet bus stories out of it.
The next time I post, you’ll hear a lot more “wes” than “Is.” Can’t wait!
