Day 0/1 – Traveling (Boston to LA to Shanghai)

We met at the Logan airport around 4:30 in the morning for our 6:25 flight to LA. After 6 hours on the plane, we arrived in LA. (I sat next to a nice young couple.) We had about a 3 hour layover, so we explored, had lunch, and played a lot of card games. Our flight to Shanghai was supposed to depart at 1:20 in the afternoon, but it was delayed due to mechanical issues. It was then delayed further to 2:20, and then 3:30, and then 6:25 in the evening. If you can’t tell, that was a lot of waiting and most of us just fell asleep on the carpet by the gate. When it was finally time to board, we gathered our things and found our seats. When we landed, it was really foggy, so we could barely just make out the wing tip. We met our guide, Stacy, after going through customs. Then we found our bus and we drove to the hotel.
