I made it in, but there was a delay at Shenzhen airport of two hours for our flight. Luckily Shanghai Airlines is a Star Alliance member so I could use my platinum Continental Airlines card to get Samuel and me into the lounge. (Now I sound like George Clooney’s über frequent flyer character in Up in the Air).
The terminal at Shanghai airport is brand new. The line at the taxi stand had at least 200 people in, but the sea of available taxi cabs made it move very quickly. Here is a glimpse of the city at night from the taxicab. Looks like I was mistaken if I thought Hong Kong was the only city with neon trimming on its buildings!
