Its Tuesday morning and I am feeling better,  I'm not sure about Taylor because I havent talked to her yet but I haven't gotten sick again. I brought my own food and will be eating it for the rest of the trip. I will not take any chances of throwing up again. We are leaving Shanghai today. Yesterday the girls went shopping, ate at a Chinese mcdonalds and saw an acrobatic show. I slept. People say I look ten times better than I did yesterday so I really am praying for a quick recovery. Our next hotel is supposed to be the nicest and our bullet train leaves around 8 instead of 10 at night. Amen. Here is to a good day. Zai jien

I always knew I had a bad stomach, but this just breaks my heart and mind. Taylor and I are both sick, left the tour and went back to the hotel early. I feel so crappy and homesick because I am half way around the world sick and without my mom. Hi ma, I miss you a lot. I cant wait to see you when I get home, I will probably cry like I am now. I think this is a combination of not enough sleep and eating the same things 2 out of 3 meals a day. And all of the fried food. I hope. I keep praying to God and please if you're reading this say a prayer for us girls out here that we maintain good health, that Taylor, Mrs Schuetz and I feel better so so soon and that we all have safe bus rides, train rides and flights that will take us one step closer to home.
