Shanghai Day 1 - Drupal Tour 2016

By Eduardo García ● CTO | March 24th, 2016

Today was my first day in China; I spend my morning into activities, the first one and crucial, figure out how to get connected to the services I regularly use in Costa Rica. Thankfully to some friends I could get connected using my computer and my phone.

The second activity was explained Drupal Console to the Bootdev folks.

I tried to get a sim card with Internet, but is only possible by a Chinese citizen with ID, so I could today I have to figure out soon because I am using a printed version of the metro map, how old style is that :P.

In the afternoon, I decided to go our alone to try to understand the city and the metro, so, I visited the Shanghai Museum. That museum has a good representation of Chinese culture; I could visit the coin section because they were about to close the museum so that I will return tomorrow.

At home, I have to plan my next day, because without the internet is more probably to get lost.

To end the day, I have a dinner with Jackie Chang from Bootdev, who explain to me some aspects about Chinese society, meanwhile we enjoy a Hot Pot dinner.
