China, China, Wo Ai Ni // Shanghai and Nanjing Highlights

---

Travel posts are my favorite to write, because they allow me to re-live my adventures all over again. Popular opinion however, I know to be somewhat against vacation recaps. Like, it is Monday, I hate everything, please let everyone be as miserable as I am right now. (Pre-coffee thoughts, I get it.)

So I condensed my week-long trip to China as much as possible. Hope it's relatively pain-free.

Well, also, I hope it helps when I say that this trip was much less of a vacation, and more like putting in the effort to spend some time with our family in China. We make this trip so often now that it's all become a bit of a routine and that landing in Shanghai becomes more like the pressing of a 'play' button to my alternate life.

China, I think, can be described in three words. (Lots of) people, pollution, and phood. And phun. Chow phun. And phamily. Because phamily comes phirst, phorever and ever. Phistbump.

Okay, I'll stop. It's 1 AM, I'm not making sense, and I have a ton of suitcases and boxes to move tomorrow as I begin my senior year. 

(!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

PS. One HUGE highlight that didn't make it into the recap was our flight from Shanghai to Tokyo (for our transfer). It was an ANA flight, a Boeing 787 if I'm not mistaken. BUT THE WINDOWS. There is no slide cover thingy. Instead, there's a little button under the window and you press it up or down to tint the windows aqua, teal, or dark dark dark dark blue. Or clear. I took a 27-second video of it to show you guys, but alas the file got corrupted (literally this is my phone rolling its eyes and being like, you are so so stupid). But I just had to put this in here.

  2. I'm dying over your description of the window and your phone rolling it's eyes at you. Hahaha you're descriptions are seriously my favorite. If you wrote a book I would seriously be writing down/underlining every hilarious passage. That's a compliment.
