My flights were pretty uneventful. If anyone is making travel plans, Cathay Pacific and Dragon Air are both comfortable airlines I just got in yesterday, which was weird because yesterday was Sunday and I was still on Saturday. Silly date line. Christina and her cousin met me at the airport and we went back to their grandmother's apartment, which is where we're staying. After lunch, Christina took me out to search for a SIM card for my phone (which I saved from my last trip, clever me), and when we walked by the subway station she took me in to show me the map, at which point I was tackled from behind by Tyler. The little sneaks had been coordinating to surprise me. We wandered around the area where we're staying (which is in Hai Dan District) and then went over to Tyler's apartment in another part of the city. We watched the Portugal-someone EuroCup game there. I missed most of it because I fell asleep on the couch. A fifteen hour time change causes some serious jet lag. All I know is Portugal won. Today we watched the Italy-England match, which was seriously intense. I won't ruin it for anyone who hasn't seen it but wants to. We're also talking about going to the soccer (or football, depending on your preference) game that's going to be held at the Bird's Nest at the start of the London Olympics on July 27th. Hopefully we can find tickets.
Anyways, since our SIM card venture failed yesterday, Christina and I are going to go back out for one today. I think I'm more awake, so hopefully I'll actually make it all the way through the day this time. We'll see.
Hope everyone back home is doing well!
