Shanghai April 2013
I had an excellent trip to Shanghai last year and wrote about it here. I was fortunate enough to be invited back.
I stayed in the Expert building, Zhangjiang Campus.
This is the library.

There were many highlights to this visit. Chen Shuai kindly accompanied me to visit the former residence of Soong Ching Ling, Sun Yat-sen’s wife (we also went to Sun Yat-sen’s former residence but that was not as interesting).
Soong Ching Ling was someone I greatly admire, She had friends like Stalin, who gave her this car.
This was one of her favourite books.
Here is one of her poems.
I also went to the China Pavilion at the World Expo Site.
This was a very impressive giant moving display of village life.

We went to little supermarkets,
and a huge mall
This time, I also had an opportunity to visit the main campus of Fudan University.
At 30 storeys, this is the tallest university building in Asia. We went there for coffee.

Back to Sydney.
