Shanghai, our last day. Even though we have ten more days to go, I feel sad, as if we are already at the end of our travels. Strange. If I were to go to Paris for a week I would feel all excited. This evening we leave for Beijing for a week, and I can hear Chopin's funeral march...

There, I met up with my private voice teacher from high school, Anne, who just happens to be in the city at the same time. She, her two friends, and I had lunch together in a nice and touristy mall near their hotel, ...
