Spring day in Shanghai

Jin Mao, Global Financial Center and the Shanghai Tower (under construction)

We finally have had a couple of days of great weather.  Recently we went over to the Pudong side and met friends at Super Brand Mall.  On the way back we stopped on the elevated cross walk and really looked around.  These three buildings are among the tallest in the world and we were right there.

Sometimes it’s worth taking a moment to take a photo.

Have you done that recently?

    Those buildings are amazing! Shanghai is constantly changing and growing, isn’t it? Glad you have some nice weather. We also lucked out this weekend in Hong Kong and enjoyed two days of sun after three weeks of pouring rain.

      Yes – the Shanghai of now is very different than 5 years ago. I remember watching the Global Financial Center go up then. Good weather really changes your perspective too!

    Same here – 26 degrees and sunny after six months of nothing but rain.
    OK, I know this is completely off-topic, but you’ve got to look at this:

    Holy smokes! In my post about Shanghai, I made no mention of the Shanghai tower because they hadn’t even broken ground yet; and now they have another massive skyscraper? Unbelievable!

      Crazy isn’t it? I saw you were in China in 2010- so much has changed! Then Shanghai was gearing up for the Expo. When I moved to China in 2007, the only building of the 3 finished was the Jin Mao. Scary fast!
