Arrival in Shanghai

We left Yarram at 5am and stopped in Warragul to pick up our friends from Neerim District Secondary College on the way to the airport this morning. Traffic was terrible and it was a very slow trip along the freeway to our destination. Finally we arrived at the airport at 9.30am and unloaded the bus to check in.

At the airport we met parents, students and teachers from Leongatha Primary School who are also visiting their sister school in Changshu. We boarded the plane at 11.15 and settled in to a long flight of movies and playing games on our tv screens. There was  quite a bit of turbulence at times and this made eating our lunch a bit of a challenge at one point. We landed in Shanghai at around 7.30pm local time and made our way through customs.

We were met by our tour guide Jack and he led us out to the bus for the 45 minute drive into downtown Shanghai to our Hotel. It was 10pm by the time we were into our rooms and many were ready for a hot shower and some sleep. The Hotel is only a 10 minute walk from The Peoples Square and we are looking forward to exploring this huge city tomorrow.
