I'm posting a few of Chris' pictures from the China trip; he may have to step in to re-caption them, though I'll do my best...
(L) The MagLev train in Shanghai; (R) A Kowloon Street in Hong Kong - the oddly fancy building at street-level looks dilapidated on the upper stories.
(L) The Hong Kong skyline with the Golden Bauhinia in the foreground, erected by the Chinese as a symbol of friendship at the 1997 handover; (R) A "wet-nap" from a Pudong (Shanghai) restaurant with an unfortunately translated name.
The I.M. Pei building in Hong Kong
