Day 53 of 111. Shanghai, China

We woke up today in Shanghai, China. It was fun to look out the window and see an interesting skyline. I thought that the colorful characters on the shore say Welcome to Shanghai or something, but our guide says they mean Starbound ⭐️, oh well! We had a bus ride to the huge railway station next to the airport and we boarded a bullet train for our trip to Hangzhou, a popular tourist destination. The train reaches speeds of 250 km/hr. There is also a maglev train in Shanghai, but that is different. An interesting fact is that the one child restriction has been eased in China. Apparently there is a need for more young people in the population since the population is getting older and many young couples are DINKs (Double Income No Kids). If you have a girl as your first child, you can have a second child to try to get a boy.
