Well, this is my last entry from China. Yesterday I roused myself to go up the Oriental Pearl TV tower (the big needle thing in the first Flickr picture). The best thing about it was the Bund Tourist Tunnel which is pretty close to indescribable but here goes: You get into a little pod, which goes dark as you enter the tunnel. Circular lights wrapped around the tunnel flash manically and voices announce the zone you are in like "Fossil zone" and "Paradise and Hell) as you move through increasingly bizarre lightshows. Brilliant, basically.
In the evening had duck, three meat soup and chicken in sesame oil and it was all vegetarian. There are several famous veggie restaurants in Shanghai which specialise in imitation meats. Apparently vegetarianism has close links with buddhism, daoism and gangsters. Takes all sorts...
Don't know what it is about me and Shanghai but it rained again yesterday.
Today went to the old town which is also a big shopping area and wandered around looking at bronzes, paintings and mao memorabilia which I had no intention of buying. My bag is full enough.
Fly tomorrow. Back by tomorrow evening courtesy of time zones. It's been fun.
