Despite the months that have passed, I find myself (amongst other fellow restless Shanghai returnees) nostalgic for that Chinese city that hooked me. The opportunity to see a friend visiting from there was too good to pass up, so after a large debate on travel modes and a flight booked the night before, we were on our way to Chicago. A Chi-nese reunion in Chi-Town – pretty much paralleled our year away, complete with unpleasant weather, lots of drinks, eating too much, sky high views, and the fetchest of girls.
4 day roundup: Weight (personal and baggage): significantly stuffed; Number of skillet baked cookies: 1; Number of international calls made to those missed around the world: 4; Amount of pizza eaten: deep dish and then some; Number of Mad Scientist/Mister Frizzle lookalikes: 1 too many; Overall experience: cool beans . Hmm where to next?
