Friday 25th May – First Morning in China

I think I am the only  one of my batch up yet. It’s just after 7am and I am pumped!! I have had my shower and got organised yet Albert is still in the land of Nod and does not want to be woken until 8am. So I thought I would say hey! 

I have taken a photo from my hotel room to show you what Shanghai looks like from here but have no way of transferring it to the computer. I need a USB port (Which I thought I brought) but am to fuzzy to work it out quite yet.

Anyway it is costing me 26 yuan for 15 minutes on the internet and I have 2 minutes left so I will choof off and go explore the hotel until some one else from the batch is up and about.

I am really ready to hit the town and do some shopping today.

Bye for now
