China Day 10: Shanghai to Dulles

Many Chinese begin the day with Tai Chi, so we’re up early visiting a park to watch.

We spend the rest of the morning discussing Chinese life with our guides Simon and Solomon.  Then we board our bus …

… for one more bus ride …

… to Shanghai International Airport.

We’ve been hearing about bird flu in the news the past couple of days and our flight is delayed for two hours while the plane is disinfected.  The good news is that, despite the delay, I make it to Chicago for the connecting flight to Dulles.  The bad news is that my luggage isn’t so lucky.  After the long flight, it’s good to get home and I’m already looking forward to the next adventure!
