Soup Dumplings!

I'm preparing to leave for Shanghai in a few days on my solo trip. Although I wrote here before that I was feeling a little anxious about traveling by myself, so many of you encouraged me to feel good about it, and I have to say that now I do. Thank you!

In addition, I looked up an old acquaintance who happens to live in Shanghai now, so I am planning to meet up with one known person there, and hopefully get an insider's take on the metropolis.

First things first, though, as soon as I get situated, I'm heading straight to find myself a famous Shanghai soup dumpling. These culinary treats are amazing, though you have to tread carefully as the contents are fiery hot and explosive! Danger awaits, but oh so worth it.

Also, I'm officially announcing my new project as a Cultural Travel writer for Examiner. com. More about this later, but please please check out my first article here!

I'll be back soon with some adventure stories from China, that is if I don't get thrown in the Bund.

I love theme restaurants! I've never been to one as involved as a ninja-themed eatery but it sounds fun. Congrats on your new job.

Have a great trip - you've made me feel hungry with those dumplings. The days are zooming past over here at the moment and I never got around to commenting on your concerns about travelling alone - I'm glad to read that you are going to Shanghai anyway!
I look forward to reading all about it when you get back...

Congrats on this new project! It seems like it's been a great week in travel writing for me and my travel blogger friends :) The Examiner site seems like a great opportunity; I might have to check what they have available for SF! Also, have fun in Shanghai!
