    I was interested in your photos of the indoor skiing palce in Shanghai.

    We will be there shortly. We have two teenage sons who are keen to ski.

    Can you tell me how to get there from the Bund.

    best regards

    Elisabeth

    Dear ELisabeth, easiest way is to jump on subway line no. 1 southbound to Xinzhuang Station (terminal station), then get a taxi from there.

    If you can print this chinese text, it will be of big help for the driver !

    上海七莘路1835号(近顾戴路口)

    Otherwise, go to the english homepage (not very informative, but…) :

    http://www.yinqixing.com/wgyy.htm

    If you can, bring your own clothes, as the provided ones are not quite “delicate”…

    Anyhow, the slopes is weak, but the skiing is fun, and watch lots of people trying to…!

    Odysseus, this evening in Shanghai there are 1 moon and 2 planets, no stars.

    I miss the blue skies too !

    ELisabeth,

    The skiing site you want to visit is Shanghai Yinqixing Indoor Skiing Site.It locates at 1835 Qixin Rd, Minhang District.

    You can take the Metro from Mid Henan Rd Station(direction: Zhongshan Park Station), then change to Metro Line 1 at next station People Square Station(direction: Xinzhuang Station). Arrive at terminal station(Xinzhuang Station), you can find free regular bus at the North Square of Xinzhuang Station after you walk out of the station. Every half an hour, from 9:00 am to 21:00 pm. Or, you can take a taxi at the square,it will cost you 20 Yuan to get there.

    Also, you can visit the website: http://www.skiing.com.cn/ to get more information.It has English Version.

    Odysseus, I did, as I wrote to you! NO stars at all.

    That’s the point for the outcomers… :-)

    But, this evening is 10 deg’s warmer than the last 5 days, Yeehaaaa !

    It’s not just the blue sky I miss. I yearn for the crispy, clean and cool air outdoors as well as the non-smoking environment as well. I read in an article not long ago. Percentage of smokers in the Bay area stands at around 12%. Only 7% of the Chinese American men smoke there vs 67% of the men smoke in China.

  9. Bellevue

    Above blue sky and all others, what you really must be missing in China is decent people.

    How many Chinese look straight at your eyes when they are talking to you?

  10. Bellevue alter ego II

    LOL Bellevue, you sure got hate against chinese, well with minor modification, read how someone profiled you, imo, it is right on.

    Name: Loser aka Bellevue

    Race:Male

    Age:30 to 40

    Race:White

    Education:Master Degree in something and minor in Chinese

    Relationship Status: Single (Since I got “yellow fever”, I used to date this chinese girl who dumped me coz of my “mental” problems. Thats why I hate all chinese, no exception!)

    Hobbies:Surfing internet and checking out all of the Chinese blog to practice my Chinese and leave hate comments. I am always hoping someone can reply to me so I can fight back, since I don’t have any friends, this is the only “human contact” I can get. Sometimes, I am so tired and bored by constantly hitting refresh button, but heck thats the price I am willing to pay for some human contact.

    Eating habits: Breakfast: 7 up with Bacon

    Lunch: Burger with French fries

    Dinner: French fries with burger

    Principles: Do not buying anything made in China. The only exception is my computer, since I really don’t have time to check each of the parts.

    Family: I grow up as a loveless child which might explain some my behavior, which is really not my fault.

    Wishes: Please continue ignoring me, that is the only way I can die peacefully.

    Happy holidays to everyone, since I really don’t have anyone to say this to.
