Shanghai Workweek

Sorry I haven't written in a long time. It was a busy week. 

Tuesday: arrived in Shanghai in the afternoon. I met up with Maja for dinner. We had soup dumplings... my favorite! I could eat them every day!

This is Maja!  (and my new favorite picture of her!)


Wednesday: I worked out of the Shanghai office. A small group of us went to lunch and everyone in that office was really nice! I ended the day with a 90 minute massage and then met Maja for a quick bite to eat. 

Thursday: I left the hotel at 5:40am to head to Nanjing to photograph Nanjing University economics and finance building. We took the high speed train and it only took an hour and 20 min to get there. It would have been 3.5 hours in a car. I thought it would be an easy day but we didn't sit down or take a break until 5pm! We had a quick dinner in which my colleague over ordered food. So so much food! Then ran back to the site for a dusk shot. We caught the 8:40 train back and I got to the hotel around 10:45. Long day! But in the end I think we got some good shots. 


This is at the end of the meal. She ordered 8 different dishes! The yellow one came as we were paying the bill. She had forgotten she ordered it! 


Friday: I was back in the office again. It was nice to have time to sort through the shots from Hanoi and Nanjing and plan upcoming shoots all over the states. Maja and I did our normal thing... we worked late. Mark commented that we have that in common. We then headed out to a nice dinner at a Thai restaurant. It was so good and we only slightly over ordered. I got a chance to have another watermelon juice. This is becoming a new favorite!
