Jody's Adventures

Shanghi... Well it's big but easy to get around, the pollution is awful, but the streets are relatively clean. It is very western with shiny shopping malls with western goods at western prices, a McDonalds on most corners, and an incredible rate of development. We went to the urban planning museum complete with a scale model of the entire city. Pretty impressive. The development plans are huge. Many areas have gone from farm fields to high rises in just 15 years, and there is no slowing down in the near future. Also went to see the touristy acrobatics show and it was awesome with plate spinners, contortionists, gymnasts, and even a guy who tossed and spun huge ceramic planters on his head. Now that is entertainment! Will try to get some pics up soon. Miss you all terribly!!!!! I'm looking at lots of cool presents to get you all, so let me know if there is anything in particular you would like!
