It started off with a 26 hour train ride from Wudang to Shanghai. Enough time for a night's sleep and some work time. Also, lots of smoggy countryside.
|It looks like it might just be foggy, but don't be fooled.|
|When the pollution subsided a little, we saw a whole skyline of buildings that you can't see here.|
First up was to knock some things off of the Adventure List that we forgot to do our first time around. So we started off by eating bugs - crickets to be exact.
|Just another handful of crickets.|
|See the compass on her wrist?|
Upon boarding the plane to Colombo, we were treated to quite the surprise. We had been upgraded to Business Class (which is First Class on this airline). We have no idea why. The only thing we could think of was that on a plane full of Sri Lankans and dirty backpackers, we looked the most respectable (we try to always look nice for flights for just this reason, but it's never worked before!) - but who knows.
It was both of our first time flying International Business Class and we lived it up. Champagne before takeoff, seats that turned into beds, a fancy diner on plates, glasses of cognac, we did it all.
Maggie, who always gets enough beauty sleep, took some pictures from the plane as we passed over the Middle East.
