The Trip to China and Opening Ceremonies

Hi from China!

18 of us made it safe into Shanghai. Travel was easy, but long. We “followed the sun” on our flight, and added another day to our life without a night in between.

Upon arriving at the hotel after being up 24+ hours, Peter the interpreter announced we had 20 min. to change into dress up clothes for a banquet in honor of the tournament competition, and warned us…”no time to shower!”…..we looked pretty good considering….

Arriving at the Hotel

Our hotel is 5-Star and next to the lake for the tournament, Ji Xin Lake.

Practice went excellent this morning. We are ready!

In an hour we will go for the opening ceremony and the first day of competition.
