I was in Shanghai last week for a technology conference. The irony of going to China for a tech conference and not being able to access things such as Google, Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube didn't escape me. I didn't think the government restricted internet would get to me, but it did. Without Google you can't answer the important dinner question like "How old is Tina Turner?" Other than those unanswered questions, my colleagues and I had a great time exploring the city and doing some shopping. I couldn't resist buying two panda bears for our twins.
We are going shopping to buy our nursery furniture tomorrow. When I announced this at the lunch table yesterday everyone volunteered to come shopping with us. It feels great to live in such a supportive community.
Let the shopping begin!
