We arrived safely in Shanghai and were picked up by a driver recommended by the hospital for the three-hour drive to Hangzhou. In order to allow for any missed flights, we planned to start trying for flights on April 19th, and since we made the first one we arrived April 20th but are not due to check in to the hospital until April 23rd. So we arranged to stay a few nights in the area of West Lake in order to get over our jet lag and do a little sightseeing.
It has been a long few days with spotty sleep at best, so in lieu of writing a post, I thought I would just link to some pictures of the last two days. I have provided captions to give you an idea of what you are looking at. Despite our lack of sleep, we have been enjoying West Lake. Take a look!
