Who hoo

            

ROFL...Megan would kill me if she knew I posted this.  Her professor is keeping a journal of the trip on blogspot.  This is the first entry.  Megan is on the right with the pink capri sweats with her glasses on next to the professor.  This was after 22 hrs of travelling.  Anyway, I thought I would share the entry here.  I'm not linking the journal to protect the privacy of the students and teachers.

Greetings from Shanghai! After more than 24 hours of travel, we arrived at our hotel in Shanghai around 10pm on Saturday night. (That's 10am Pittsburgh time.) The plane rides were long, of course, but tolerable. We were treated to such interesting meal combinations as seafood pasta and peach yogurt as well as the greenest green tea that I've ever seen. The guide who met us at the airport is very knowledegable, although most of his knowledge appears to be about American television shows. I might not learn much about Shanghai, but at least I can catch up on the 24 that I'm missing!

Today's itinerary includes a day-long, whirlwind tour of Shanghai including dinner with students at Shanghai Jiaotong University followed by a Chinese acrobat show at night
.

LOL..I have an account there because Becky does.  It took all I could muster not to leave "smooches" or something for Megan.  The only comment was from the other professor who will be meeting with the group shortly.  I'm supposing I can post some pictures as the blog is public domain.

Most of the three week trip will be in the cities throughout China with the final week in Japan.

Wow, the wonders of modern technology.  I can travel with Megan through Asia.  (Betting she's gonna love this...hehe)

Here are a couple of snags...I don't think there's room to tag em....HUGS  Chris

Chris,
I have to share this with my son, Nathan.  He developed some very good friendships while he stayed in Japan.  Every now and then, we are visited by one of his international friends.  I'm sure Megan is having a great time.
