Blog 2/6/14 In flight Shanghai to San Francisco 5:50am local time. Since I last blogged about Bob’s escapades walking on the river in shorts, we have had little in the way of cultural mishaps and we are feeling quite good about that.  Yesterday, before leaving for SF, I finally did make it over to PuxiContinue Reading
