 Thursday - the last day of training. I was actually sad for it to end. It was one of the best trainings I have been to. Our trainer, Kit, was super enthusiastic, and was very accessible and patient with us. Some ATs (local staff, Assistant Trainers) cried when we parted. Some went with us (the FTs - Foreign Trainers) to dinner and kareoke to celebrate the end of training. I will miss them. We had a great group. 

Today, a few of us had our "visa interviews" today, which means we went to Pudong to get our picture taken and a piece of paper that enables us to travel without our passports while our visas get processed. Then, since my placement's in Nanjing, I had the rest of the afternoon off (technically "on call"). Amelia and I wandered the local 10 story-tall mall, had lunch, and then headed back to the hotel before going out with everyone for our last weekend in Shanghai. Tomorrow starts the National holiday - a 5 day break from work, and some of the FTs will start moving in to their apartments. At this time next week, I will be in Nanjing...
