BACK FROM BEIJING
We got in yesterday from Beijing and we were very happy to be home. Overall, the trip to Shanghai and Beijing was great. The food, seeing friends and family, and working from our hotel room while sick for five days :)
Shanghai was a vibrant city where you can feel the energy. Definitely would like to visit again. Beijing was good to visit, but traffic is worse than Shanghai and the air really sucks. The air is so dirty you can't see across the city on clear days.
Anyway, I'll write more later about my time in China.
