Shanghai Street
Visiting Shanghai you realize that you are not the only tourist.... Actually, Shanghai is the center in a 400 million people area of China.... And all of these 400 million people wants to go to Shanghai, to see the sights and sounds. And to shop at Nanjing Rd. Or so it seems.

There are some spectacular views in Shanghai though. Standing near the Huangpu, a tributary to the great Yangtze river, looking over to the skyscrapers at Pudong - you wonder if this vision of the future will be the dominant one in the coming years.
Surely, the house of the bund (old colonial neighborhood) - just behind you - are the past.

But the future - Well, we will have to wait and see!
