The train journey was suprisingly ok! Not much space but it helps to already know the people you are squeezed in with, the train was fast smooth and quiet, Al is getting better at playing poker!
Shanghai air is cleaner than Beijing, it is a busy frantic city. Downtown has huge open malls and along the river has lots of colonial buildings. Last night we went to an acrobat show which included 5 motor bikes in a ball of death metal sphere. Tomorrow is a 17 hour train trip so that will be another challenge!
