Surprise Trip

So my friend in Beijing made a surprise last minute trip to Los Angeles. She had a few months left on her US tourist visa so she came to visit during China's National Day holiday. Since I just took two weeks off to go to Asia, I was only able to sneak in one more vacation day.

Mon 9/27: arrival and dinner with parents
Tue 9/28: sleep in and late check-out; Fashion Island; move in to guest room
Wed 9/29: Universal Studios and dinner with parents again
Thu 9/30: shopping and dinner with her Beijing friend living in US
Fri 10/1: more shopping and Ducks hockey game
Sat 10/2: Huntington Beach and USC vs. Washington game
Sun 10/3: even more shopping and dinner with parents
Mon 10/4: departure

Not sure if that sounds like an interesting trip. The last minute tickets cost her ~RMB9000 which is about the same as what I paid last month to go LAX-CTU/PEK-LAX on Cathay Pacific.
