We were in Shanghai for a cold, windy January day. We really didn’t get to do many things because of the cold and our limited time, but even just seeing the buildings in Lujiazui from the Bund was breathtaking. We also went to the Urban Planning Exhibition Hall—the urbanism geek in me was in heaven seeing so many cool infrastructure projects. Also riding the Maglev is so coooool.
