Shanghai

Shanghai is absolutely massive. MOOOOAAAASSIVE. It’s like Coruscant meets Bladerunner. A city designed for a wide-angle lens. 34 million live here. That’s all of Spain squashed into a city.

The Maglev from Pudong Airport to Longyang Road shifts along at a heart farting 431 km/h,270mph. That’s a mile every 13 seconds.

430 km/h = Me crapping my pants.

Guard salutes the Maglev as it approaches Longyang Station, Shanghai.

 

 

And then there’s the Bund, and the tunnel.  What is it with the tunnel?  I’m sure it cost a lot of Yuan to build, and there seems to be good return on investment, but I’m not exactly sure why.
