China Once, China Twice

My new backpack

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.
