arriving in Shanghai

I am starting to think about what to pack and bring. It's been raining so much in California the past few weeks, I hope I won't get too wet in China! The flight leaves on April 9 from San Francisco to Shanghai. I will spend only one night in Shanghai, so won't get to see it much on this trip. Other than Shanghai and Beijing, I have not been to any of the cities in between, so it should be an interesting experience. The weather in these cities appear to be between high 40's to 70's, so that's pleasant. I am joining a tour and will be sharing a room with a stranger, at least to start with. I don't know how internet connected I will be, I will try to update this log enroute if I can.
Arrived in Shanghai after about 13 hours flight, it was raining when we landed.
The Salvo Hotel is in a convenient location, but the stores were closed by the time we checked in, so we did not get to look around the streets. The hotel room was nice, with a big tub/shower section inside the bathroom, separated by glass sliding doors to the sink and toilet. A desk and sitting area with a TV, then 2 beds in the backroom. The goose comforter was nice and soft and I fell asleep within a few minutes.
