Shanghai, China

It was great to be back in Shasnghai again. The skyline cvontinues to change with new buildings popping up. We even saw the beginning construction of the new tallest building in Shanghai which will be 120 stories. We returned to many of our old haunts and had a wonderful time.

Capitalism is alive and well in China.

Just for the experience we took a ride on the new maglev (magnetic levitation) train which goes from downtown to the new international airport. We travelled 18 Miles in 7 minutes at a top Speed of 430 kilometers per hour (267 mph). This is the fastest train in the world.

Tomorrow night we have been invited to dine with the captain and his wife. They are very nice, and we are reaslly looking forward to it
