The Road to Shanghai
The adventure for all the new China Teachers started in Shanghai.
I imagined the days spent here would give me the chance to relax, acclimate to a new country, and get to know other new teachers. This was not entirely true. Albeit, I did learn valuable skills that I could use while in China. Such as crossing the street, in China it's more like playing frogger. Cars will drive uncomfortably close to you and somehow manage to avoid collision. Truly impressive and equally terrifying!
Thankfully our group survived Shanghai due to the efforts of our fearless leader, Kelvin. He guided us on a wonderful Shanghai experience. One of the more notable sights was Shanghai Tower (2nd tallest building in the world). I highly recommend the views.
