Shanghai 09

Written by Cliff on Saturday 31 January 2009 at 12:04 am

My friends often wonder what I do in Shanghai every now and then, isn’t that right? So. Apart from the fact that the Shanghai female race is superior, etc. (this is contested), I come here to enjoy food amongst the masses. So it was CNY, and I attended a banquet held just on the outskirts of the outskirts of Shanghai.

Brno – a blank in my memory. Only two hours south of beautiful Prague by train, Brno is light years away from its capital. Its a workers; town, a cost haven for many automobile companies wishing to take advantage of its relatively cheaper workforce. Its a vibrant city with only 2.5% unemployment and a limited cultural heritage. Indeed, one can say that there is little to do in a city of 400,000 inhabitants. I took a peek in its shopping mall, watched a movie and bought blueberries in its open-air market.

Berlin, a city of change. Over the short span of 60 years, the capital of the Bundesrepublic has undergone massive change. From being part of the Prussian empire under the leadership of king Friedrich II, it was the centre of both world wars and has witnessed all forms of government. ……
