Annie and I have made the big trip from Boston to the famous Yiwu markets!
- Doted on by airline steward on flight out of San Francisco who took a shine to us: champagne, chocolates, a full page hand-written list of favorite destinations in Shanghai, and a shout-out to us by name when we landed after our 12 hour flight. (We didn’t have the heart to tell him we were staying in Shanghai only one day!)
- Offered exceptional kind assistance in Hongqiao Railway Station from a lovely girl who somehow determined that we were out of our element.
- I made a terrific first impression by literally stumbling onto the bullet train from Shanghai to Yiwu, battling a heat-exhaustion black-out.
- Not to be outdone, Annie rode her backside down a concrete luggage ramp in Yiwu after mistaking it for a wheelchair ramp.
We are having a wonderful adventure!
P.S. It is a little warm.
