Early Saturday in Shanghai, Dec 2010.
It is eleven years to the month since the first time I passed Shanghai on my one-way journey from Guangzhou to Beijing in cold December 1999. Nothing I can remember from back then apart from the Oriental Pearl Tower and The Bund, which also have more blings now than the old days. Shanghai has definitely grown up.
The first of seven parts:
The nice part of Shanghai, so I am told. A wee park on the roundabout where the bird enthusiasts showcase their pets (enlarge the first pic and you can see those bird cages lined up in front of those people) and mothers leisurely stroll their only children.
