In transit …

This morning came real fast. In fact, it came too fast. Rach and I missed our wake-up call and woke up 10 minutes before we had to leave. Considering none of my things were packed and clothes still wet from washing them in the sink the night before, it was a little overwhelming, but we made it on time.

So we left for the hotel and once we arrived, we had another group meeting for a recap on what we have done so far and what we will be doing tomorrow – visiting the largest water control project in the world today.

Rachael and I didn’t start our run until about 8pm, so it got dark rather fast. We ran along the Yangtze river, and the streets were very congested with people. We saw the locals dancing in the streets and wanted to join, but I think we already stood out enough trying to dodge these crowds of people.
