And…we’re back! And…we’re here! Ashley and I arrived in Shanghai a day late due to “mechanical problems” out of St. Louis, which resulted in a night in New York City. Nothing too exciting to discuss there. It was raining and our luggage was elsewhere, so there was not a whole lot to do. No Les Halles or Book of Mormon for us.
Since arriving in Shanghai we’ve been spending every waking moment apartment searching and Internet fixing/manipulating. The blog website was, well, is still, blocked and our usual VPN and proxies are down, too. However, after some increasingly vigorous investigations and some help from a friend, we are now able to freely use the Internet–the way every person should. Recently, China has been intensifying its restrictions and censorship controls on the Internet for a handful of reasons, but more on that later.
We haven’t had any time at all to snap many pictures or do anything of any real interest, unfortunately. But, our today is your Turkey day, so this evening we will post some pictures of how the Chinese unknowingly celebrate Thanksgiving. Enjoy your holiday!
