ckparis on the peal tower observation deck floor


another shanghai ariel view pix taken by ann-rhea fitch.
bottom pix taken by the candy man of me standing on the glass floor of the pearl tower observation deck.
( do i look like a deer in the head lights?)
it rained the day we went to the top of the pearl tower so the floor view is cloudy.
c'est la vie.

by the time you read this, i will be in hong kong.
not shanghai to hong kong.
miami to hong kong.
ca-raazy january travel.
gotta love mileage runs.

see you on the astral plane.

ckparis and shanghai pearl tower

shanghai pearl tower and glass entrance to the apple store.
shanghai has the most outrageous architecture.

chauss random shanghai observations:

1.  everything  is open on sundays. it is just another day.
2.  taxi drivers keep crickets as pets in small glass jars.
3.  no english anywhere. none.
4.  shanghai loves blondes.
5.  foreign designer goods are more $$$ than in US or Europe.
6.  cucumber juice. perfect. plain. alkalize and energize.
7.  no one in shanghai wears sunglasses. (at least not in january).
8.  IFC mall. unbelievable. outrageous. makes bal harbour look like crap. celine, prada, miu miu, balmain, valentino, louis vuitton, cartier, tiffany and all the usual suspects under one roof.
disney world of shopping (but extra $$$ bc of high import taxes).
9.  twitter  and blogspot are blocked. this is communist china.
10.  no clothes dryers. tons of clothes, blankets and sheets are hanging outside everywhere (even in the expensive real estate sections).

see you on the astral plane.

p.s. you need a visa from the chinese goverment to enter shanghai.
