Shanghai so far
Took the high-speed train. Saw old friends. Had a bagel with cream cheese the minute I got to their apartment. Had wine and cheese at the top of the Ritz Carlton (for free). Spent an afternoon at the markets. Had a dinner party with my friends. Went to an insane house party in a three-story apartment.
Until now, I’d forgotten why I liked this place so much when I visited last year.
