tours and all

My parents want to go on a trip to Shanghai, so I went with them to investigate tours. I hate going on guided tours, I hate being in a group, not having control of where I go, when I go, what to eat. Plus the obligatory stop at shops that sell nothing I want but gets commission from the tour company, and having to tip the guides.

But I guess for some people it’s the convenience of not having to plan, of having other people cart them round.

So we got a bunch of brochures and then we went to a fast food place to look at them. Then Mum and I went looking at electrical stuff, and we had dinner at a hotel buffet.
