Shanghai Photos – layover on the way to the US

We stopped in Shanghai for a layover and saw the World Expo while we were there.

3 Family Reunions!

I’m going to be away for a little while visiting family and friends in the United States. We get to attend 1 wedding and 3 family reunions! It’ll be great to see our extended families especially since we don’t get to see them often.

We also get to visit the World Expo in Shanghai. Since we are flying through Shanghai anyway, we decided to make it an extended (24 hour) layover so that we could see the Expo. A “World Expo” is the same thing that used to be called a “World’s Fair” and I’ve wanted to attend one ever since I learned about the Chicago World’s Fair of 1893.

I still plan to update this blog while I’m away, but it will be less often since I won’t be able to cook as much while I’m traveling.
