So this will be the first post on my new tumblr blog. I’m writing on here because China’s blocked blogger. I will keep my posts and anecdotes fairly brief since I’ve found it hard to keep up with blogging and traveling when you’re trying to write an essay each day.
Day 0 - I landed in Shanghai Monday evening.
1. Maglev is fast. 301 km/h
2. Coming into the city, the feel is a mix between Taipei and HK.
Day 1 - Tuesday
Went jogging this morning. Air is bad! After running around for about 20 min, I felt like the time I first tried cigarettes. Also, aside from a 60 year old man I saw, Shanghai people don’t jog.
Did some bagua training this morning next to a group of old people practicing Tai-Chi. Again, I was the weirdo that stood out being the only 20-something year old hanging out with old folks.
Tired. Been walking all day. Saw:
1. Shanghai Museum: Real nice museum with old school Chinese art. I especially liked the ceramics exhibition.
2. The Bund: The famous Bund skyline. Once I figure out how to post pics, I’ll put one up.
Allright, till next time!
