I went to Italy last week to enjoy summer vacation. An amazing and a little strange journey.
I visit Italy via Shanghai for cheaper airplane tickets. I stayed in Shanghai for a night.
The Shanghai international airport was gorgeously shining. The ceiling equipped a large amount of pillars.
I stayed at a hotel near the airport. The landscape in the window of the room was simple. I had not thought that Shanghai would be more than a place of instant stay.
The next morning, I went to a terminal at the Shanghai international airport. The windows of registration services were very crowded.
Then, I was surprised to be informed that I could not board the airplane due to over booking.
I knew that airlines often overbooked to maximize their income. However, it is for the first time for me to be rejected to board. Some other clients were also confused.
I had no choice to accept the compensation fee from the airline to abandon the boarding.
So, I had to stay for another night.
Nothing to do other than, I visited the Bund.
The Oriental Pearl Tower was very beautiful. This had been the tallest tower in Asia before Tokyo Sky tree was established.
I had as Xiaolongbao (eastern Chinese steamed bun) and some other Chinese cuisine. This is so called Dalongbao. I pierced the skin with a straw to drink the soup. Quite delicious.
Some ships were floating with electric decorations.
I enjoyed the Shanghai night. But my journey to Italy had not begun...
