One small step for man, one giant leap for Franklicious!
I'm doing it. I'm moving to Shanghai!
Well, for at least three months or so. Hehe. We'll see how it goes from there. I'm looking at the L (tourist) visa to start, and I spent an hour on the phone with some poor customer service rep at Cheaptickets.com about having my return trip ticket be exchangeable for a later date. I'd buy a one-way ticket if I hadn't heard it would look bad coming in.
I've even tracked down a cool place to live! Nice little apartment, decent price, not too far from things. I'm almost set to go!
Right now I'm looking at February 14th for my departure date, landing in SH on the 15th. I'll be there until mid-May, at the very least. Any other Poddies living in Shanghai? I mean, I'm sure the folks at Praxis HQ will be glad to see me... for the first week or so. LOL After that, they're going to start asking me to make new friends. I figured I'd start now. :-)
