China 2006 - Shanghai Oct. Interesting I
There are many interesting sights around Shanghai these days,
some I've shown before,
but this particular fall day had spectacular weather - true blue skies, as you can see in this photo of Pudong.
The Jin Mao building in sparkling sunshine - you don't see this every day (or even every month)
Up close and personal - 88 stories up to the sky
Pudong at night - all these go off around 10pm to save electricity
Other Pudong buildings just hanging out - the left two are
featured in the movie Mission Impossible 3,
when Tom Cruise jumps from the leftmost building to the second one and almost slides off the sloped roof.
Folks hanging out on the river on a nice day, enjoying the fall weather
And a huge satellite ship passed by; no idea what this is or
why it's in the small Hangpu River;
by far the largest ship I've ever seen in the river; in this case going down river to the Yangtze
Something you never see - a police officer giving a ticket !
We could use more of that in Shanghai.
