My other concern is the lack of media attention in other countries, to inform people of the new modern Shanghai. I have had friends from America ask: “Do you have electricity there?”, “Do you dress funny and different from the people from Shanghai?”, “Do you get tired of just eating rice?”, “Are you afraid to be there?”
I am in a conference for three days. Today is the first day. I may not be able to access Internet, so my blog may be paused for two days.
Bill gave a very good suggestion that we should hang a very large national flag of China in the Shanghai Pudong Airport. It is very good suggestion.
During the clearance of my drawer, I found a notebook with the following flying records:
Aug 24 7:30 PM Shanghai -> Hefei
Aug 26 8:15 AM Hefei -> Shanghai
Aug 29 7:15 PM Shanghai -> Beijing
Aug 31 6:30 PM Beijing -> Shanghai
Sept 4 8:15 AM Shanghai -> Guangzhou
Sept 5 7:50 PM Guangzhou -> Shanghai
Sept 8 7:00 PM Shanghai -> Beijing
Sept 10 7:00 PM Beijing -> Shanghai
Sept 17 7:00 PM Shanghai -> Beijing
Sept 18 7:00 PM Beijing -> Shanghai
It is among the busiest time I had during my life. It is in the year of 2000.
