 My dad always plans trips when we're on them. So, then we don't have to worry about tickets or the hostels we're staying at. My large, yellow backpack is ready and so is everything else. We're leaving on Saturday to go to Shanghai. My backpack includes:

1. 4 thick books

2. games

3. food

4. a painting set

5. a small journal

    My mom carries our clothes and dad takes care of the money and passports. We are bringing a very old sliver computer. We only use it because it's light. The Kindle doesn't have many books on it though. My sister and I usually trade books on the trip.
    Although we usually meet kids our own age and make friends with them, we never see or talk to them ever again. One of them gave us her e-mail but we lost it somewhere on the Chinese train. Even though it's hot and we're always tired or getting over jet lag, we always have lots of fun and a good experience.

We're leaving around 10:45 tomorrow. It's 95 Fahrenheit right now. On the cta dad was drenched in sweat. (Gross)! Anyway we missed our bus and ate cheese popcorn on the platform.(Yummy)! The hardest part was that today was our last day of Summer Lab School at U of C. We had to say good-bye to all of our new friends. I have some of their e-mails. Two of them like far away, Nevada and Georgia. One of them was is my class from last year and was my friend. We have seen all of our classmates and a hated teenager (don't know why we hate him at all).
One of our classmates from last year said she didn't know us and called us stalkers.
