This past week has been very enlightening. I have been to China once before, but it was back in high school, and we were primarily there for tourism. Bridget, Jamie, and I were late getting into the airport in Shanghai because we had to be rerouted due to weather and a medical emergency after missing one of our connecting flights. When we made it to the Shanghai airport, we did not see anyone we were supposed to meet. We had sent a message to the rest of our group letting them know we would be late but internet was impossible to access where we were in the airport so we did not know if we were supposed to even be looking for anyone (We later found out that Bill had come to meet us but was told we were coming in a different terminal so our paths never crossed). After looking around for a little while and trying to purchase a Sim card, which did not work because phones from the United States are locked, we came to the conclusion that we would have to find the hotel ourselves. We remembered from class that we needed to take bus 4 to the end of the line and the hotel would be right there. We tried to ask several people where the bus was, but they tried to convince us that the bus did not go there or that a taxi would be cheaper. Luckily we listened to what we remembered, found the bus, and made it to the hotel.
