It's amazing how much can be crammed into a single day. Early In the morning we went to ATKearny for a lesson on global supply chain. I was blown away by the complexity and hearing about working entire weeks with little to no sleep made me cringe. I don't know if that is for me... I hear engineers suffer the same fate when deadlines creep up. I hope I don't have to suffer that way. The presentation felt slow to start (maybe it was over my head) but as we started to ask more questions, the room livened up and things began to make more sense. They do an awesome job with their consulting services. Later we toured downtown, I was able to find some pretty cool gifts at the garden, and the buildings just blew me away. The river boat tour was amazing. Many of the locals always tell me that Shanghai doesn't have the same historical context that Beijing has, but to my surprise there is a ton of history here in Shanghai. From English settlers to Japanese invaders. This land has gone through a lot before the government of China took over. It's pretty awesome to be learning so much about global engineering while at the same times learnîng a tremendous amount of Chinese history. Awesome day! Let's see what the final day has in store. Sad to say the trip is coming to a close.... Although I miss my own bed and mother- I don't miss the everyday hustle and bustle too much.
