A June 2004 trip

Quote: This was a part of my seven days, five cities trip. It was quite rushed, but it was interesting to see traditions mixed with modernity.

Attraction | "Shanghai History Museum"
Most of the display's description were in Chinese, so foreigners may not understand. But the wax, the cars, the various things are still interesting to look at.

Attraction | "Yu Yuan Gardens & Bazaar"
I was impressed by the windows, the rock formations that were man made to look natural, and the various pavilions. I can almost imagine (well, try to ignore the hordes of visitors) myself being a girl back in the whatever dynasty and stuck at home all day long. Being confined to home doesn't seem so horrible. You have the mountains, the water, the flowers, and nature right at home. Why would you need to go outside?
