A few more things about Shanghai...

Whilst in Shanghai on Tuesday, I did take a few photos.

I saw some Urban landscaping sort of stuff:

It will be hard to go to Shanghai and not see this for the next few years. It is the mascot for the 2010 Shanghai Expo.

I took the following two photos at the Shanghai Museum. These figures seem to be posing and strutting on top of babies. But I don't know what they are supposed to represent.

While in Shanghai on Tuesday, I also experienced the annoyance of trying to board and deboard the subway. One time, the door shut stopping me from getting on. Another time, I had to shove to get off the car. It seems that boarding passengers won't wait for other passengers to get off before trying to get on. It is annoying and it wouldn't surprise me if fights don't occasionally result.

The Shanghai Museum is one of the best in China (I also like the Sha'anxi Museum in Xi'an and Xinjiang Museum in Urumqi). And I'm not surprised by your experience at the subway--happens in every Chinese city with a subway. Best to avoid using it during the worst of the rush hours (which is almost all the time).
