After a 13 hour flight from Detroit, we arrived in Shanghai around 6 pm local time. Several of our Chinese colleagues from the Freshwater Fisheries Research Center in Wuxi met us at the airport for pickup. We then drove about 3 hours south to Wuxi to get settled in to our hotel. So, a long day, but everything is in good order. Tomorrow we visit a center for pearl culture and rearing rare fishes from the Yangtze River.
