View from my hotel room – I am quite a big fan of the Renaissance in Shanghai – not super downtown, but close enough.
It also floats above Zhongshan Park, which I had written about before. It’s quite a pleasure to drop in on the way to the Shanghai Dell offices, and get a little slice of everyday Chinese life before logging into the old e-mail.
Old dudes together, found everywhere in the world.
Pleasure boats, lined up for a weekend of action.
Practice makes perfect.
As has happened with Hong Kong, it’s a little strange to realise that the regular trips I make there are becoming routine. When people ask ‘hey, how was the Shanghai trip?’ it seems terribly spoiled to say ‘oh, normal’ … it just doesn’t cut it!
I think much of that is down to losing some great friends from the city (now in Germany and … well, I am not too sure), and I am building up some new links and all. It will get its mojo back, of this I have no doubt.
Next trip for me though, is of course Miami … still blows me away that I will be there in a matter of weeks!
