Sunday in Shanghai

Just a few pictures from Sunday, since it’s Monday morning and the work is stacked up on my desk (figuratively speaking).

1.  This underground mall at a Line 2  metro station says Everything you need, nothing you don’t.

2.  The exit at People’s Square station shows a beautiful Art Deco style building (the brown one – but you knew that, right?).  The crazy UFO top building is a Radisson Hotel.  One cannot be an architect in Shanghai and be bland : that would be a mortal sin.

3.  To translate People’s Square into Chinese, go 人民广场 rén mín guǎng chǎng or man – citizen- wide – open space.  Note the cell phone bar code image next to it.   My phone cannot read it.  Boo-0o!  I need to trade in my business-like Blackberry for a Google Droid phone !

4.  I stood in line for 30 mins to get into the Shanghai museum, similar to the Hong Kong Museum of Art, maybe a little bigger.   There were lines inside the museum for some of the exhibits as well.   This is an ox-shaped wine vessel or zun from around 500 BC.
