...from Shanghai Int. Airport!

Rockin' out at the same gate I always leave out of. Ready for my 11th jaunt around the world.

Lookin' a mess, feelin' great...

The view from the waiting area...it's rainy/grey skies out there to fly into today...

The anticipation of America is glorious. This morning someone pushed me in line to get on the bus and I thought to myself, "This won't happen in 24 hours." I'm meeting my parents in Boston for a few days before heading home.

When I arrived to the airport today I got a phone call from a classmate asking me some details about the class trip today (that I'm missing, obvi). I responded, "I have no idea, I'm going to America today!" and I got goosebumps. That's such an exciting thing to say, I'm going to America today.

Also, every time I leave I get a random text message from a Chinese person who has heard I am leaving but doesn't know the details and thinks I'm leaving for good. This morning it was a student that hasn't been to my class at the hospital in a long time. "Jessica, I heard you are leaving. Please come back again. Keep in touch." I responded that I am only going to be gone for 8 days. "Oh, ok, when you come back we wil go sing songs," was his response. haha. Ok, dude. We'll go sing songs (KTV).

I packed last night at 1am so I'm not really sure what made it's way into my luggage. And I'm slightly regreeting my outfit choice of the journey, but there's no going back now. Whatev, the important thing is...there's another stamp in my passport!

See you on the other side.

walk slow. xoxo.
