I would not see the real panda bears on this first trip, so I found the next best thing. The kid at heart is still hanging around Shanghai waiting for her kid to arrive.
So my camera and I wandered the streets. I no longer feared getting lost. My earlier need to walk in a straight line to avoid getting lost had been solved in Xi’an. In my pocket was a hotel card. It would tell any taxi driver “Take me to my hotel.”
I loved what I saw, it was me!
The next day, the Olympic torch relay would pass through Shanghai. That was the only time I found China truly crowded.
View the world through the eyes of a child.
Everything is new, innocent, and how we learn our beliefs.
