Shanghai Glass Museum

I leave China on Friday. THIS Friday.

So in between trying to work out visas for the next leg of my trip, packing (kinda) and preparing to leave and ALL  my final assignments (3 assignments due yesterday, two presentations today, one presentation tomorrow) I’ve been trying to steal time to do some interesting Shanghai activities before I leave. On Saturday my friend Melody and I went to the Shanghai Museum of Glass which was a really interesting experience. We also participated in a DIY Glass blowing demonstration and got to blow our own glass and make vases to take home (even though I have no idea where I puttin that shit at this point lol).

Anyway, yall know I went Instagram crazy.

We reach!
