Planes, Trains, and Autos….

Today we flew into Shenzen.  We woke up so late, like at 5:17 when we needed to get in the cab at 5:30.  Not a problem for me cuz showers usually don’t happen everyday nor does new makeup.  Ha, don’t worry.  I don’t wear foundation so it’s pretty much just dirty eye make up.  Lol.   Now Carla is another story. She must shower everyday and I haven’t heard the end of it.

We stepped off the plane and it was foreign territory.  It is quite crazy how you need a cab driver to take you where you need to go. We simply showed him an email with directions and trusted we’d get there. No worries, we did, but the entire time we were talking about trust and cab drivers. It’s a funny thing.

We had a quick meeting and for the past 4 hours we’ve just been strolling around the fanciest mall.  Ya, you gotta love Carla trying on a pair of $15,000 pair of earrings for fun and me saying “you totally need to buy them”.  Seriously, who just walks in a store and spends 15k? Better yet, who spends 15k in one day? Certainly not me.

Now we are sitting in a hotel Lobby. Yup, just sitting.  Luckily the chairs aren’t too comfortable or else I’d certainly be fast asleep.  The view is amazing as you can see….well actually you can’t because I can’t get this photo to upload.

Oh, oh, there’s a Walmart across the street. So weird to see that. A little scary in the sense Walmart is everywhere!  We’re gonna venture over there in a bit.  I admit I’m quite interested in seeing what’s inside.  I watched a story on CNN once and it looked like a bunch of fish and weird live animals. Hmmm let’s see.

Tomorrow we head to Changzhou on the fast train (which we think we r super cool). It is seriously so fast. And as Carla keeps reminding me, we get to sit in First Class. This is a big deal cuz we can’t afford first class on the plane but hey, we can on the train!

And that’s about all I have to say today besides I am so super tired.
