Last leg of the trip!Shanghai is the NYC of China.I read in one book that the Chinese govt would be elated if Shanghai overtook Hong Kong as the financial, etc capital of the country.
I have seen the Shanghai museum and walked the Bund, a riverwalk of sorts.After 9/11, I spent some time in NYC and I forgot, until now, how much I enjoy the vibrancy of the city environment.This is especially true of the evening hours.Walking down the open air malls and seeing all the people, the lights and the colors… ahh what fun.

8/13/11 M: Mom, remember that one time, when I was 4 years old, that I was obedient the WHOLE DAY! _______________________________________ 1/19/11 While watching our shadows stretch out in the setting sun:
M: Wow, I'm huge! I'm as big as you now! Like 101! ____________________________________________ 10/24/10
Princess M had just finished watching a movie when the following converstaion took place:
Mom: M, so what movie did you watch?
M: Monsters vs Aliens.
Dad: Who won this time?
Dad: Well, when are the Aliens going to win?
M: Never, the monsters always win.
Mom: That doesn't seem fair.
Dad: Yeah, the monsters should learn to share and let the Aliens win now and then...
Dad: Would you like playing a game with someone who never lets you win...
Dad: Shouldn't the Aliens get a chance to win and destroy the world sometime?
M: DAD! But then it would be PG13!
1/24/10 (on the subject of what she learned in her primary class)
M: "About how we need to follow in his (Jesus') footsteps and he lives up in the clouds, only we don't know which cloud he's on. And you need to watch out for the aliens up in the clouds too, you know, like in Chicken Little, because they're flying up there, watching us, and they could come jump down on us. They want us to follow them, but we want to follow Jesus..."
