I'm Home & Safe!

So I would have written sooner - but it appears that you cannot access blogger in China:(

Just to let you all know the earthquake hit before we left for Shanghai and Shanghai seemed to be uneffected by the quake (well in a physical sense anyways), Fiona's Mum rang us after the earthquake had happened but we took off from Auckland without a hitch.

I did see a few flashes on the news in China about the earthquake and when we were leaving China the country was having 3 days of national mourning with all of the flags flying half mast.

We did have one particularly surreal moment on our last day in Shanghai when we were in a taxi and there was a moment of silence for the victims of the earthquake - all the madness of the city suddenly stopped and it was quite weird as Shanghai never really seems to stop.

Will be back with some more Shanghai adventures soon!
