Day 26 and 27: August 17 and 18
We spent a relaxing morning having a long breakfast and buying train and flight tickets for the rest of our China trip. We also decided to walk along one of the Hutongs in Beijing….In the ridiculous heat! Apparently, China js in the midst of one of the hottest summers on record! Great timing, huh?
We got to the station early for our overnight train to Shanghai.
Amma and Appa were staying with one of their friends in Shanghai which just happened to be right opposite CEIBS, where Bill studied for two years from 2008-10 for his MBA. After showing them around the area for a bit, Bill and I left to hang out with our friends for the rest of the day. It was wonderful to see old friends again…and go back to one of my favorite restaurants in Shanghai. The city is certainly special to Bill but I’ve also had a soft spot for the city and our friends that live here. So great to be back!
