Sounds like you need a moped and a ride outside of the city. Any plans to visit the countryside?

John Dowdell

No, I was thinking coming in that I might visit some of the outlying towns, but then realized I was really seeking what was going on in the two cities this trip. Might still take a daytrip to one of the water towns during this last week in Shanghai, but I've seen the tourist hustle in such places before, and it might be more stressful.

China is definitely more than the two cities, and has some of the most gorgeous countryside I've ever seen... what I'm getting this go-round is just a very skewed picture of the overall scene. The current urban environment is the part I'm trying to understand.

(By the way, I hope I didn't guilt-trip you into commenting... no pressure on that, Dave. ;-)
