Shanghai has exceeded, my already very high expectations, over the last week – it is a great city and, as you can see from the featured photo of Nanjing Road, very paradoxical!
I expected to update my blog daily but quite frankly, have been having too much fun and very little time on my laptop, except to upload photos to flickr.
Last week I had a range of excellent, stimulating experiences (some of which I tweeted about) including much wandering with my camera and:
- the Shanghai museum
- the 2010 World Expo
- boating in Suzhou
- the Yu Yuan Gardens
- wandering the streets of the old town, French Concession and the Bund
- seeing the New Shanghai Circus
- hearing the TMSK Ensemble
- many othergardens and museums of political and social interest
I will write more considered posts on return to Australia about what I have learnt re: education and learning in Shanghai.
Here’s a slideshow of Shanghai faces and another of my best photos so far.
