Saturday/ quick trip to Shenzhen

I took  the 20 min taxi ride for a quick trip in to Shenzhen tonight.  The pictures are all from in and around the Mix-C shopping mall.   I actually went to check out the Kingkey Finance Tower with its 100 floors at night.   It can run gigantic banner advertisements on its curved sides, make flowers drift down on it, or even display bursting fireworks.   (The third picture is an aerial perspective drawing that I found on-line).   Speaking of flowers,  the movie ‘The Flowers of War’ has just started showing here in theaters.  It features Hollywood actor Christian Bale as a Westerner that finds refuge with a group of women in a church during Japan’s brutal invasion of Nanking in 1937 and tries to lead them to safety.    The beautiful big dog was on the outside patio at Starbucks and generated a little stir among the other patrons.  His master is the guy with the big notebook computer.
