Last Update from Shanghai

I got back very tired on Friday evening from Shanghai. One final item I wanted you to take a look at before I close the Chinese chapter. We deliberately took the Shanghai Meglev Train from the city center to the airport. It was very impressive. Maglev, or magnetic levitation, is a system of transportation that suspends, guides and propels vehicles, predominantly trains, using magnetic levitation from a very large number of magnets for lift and propulsion. We got up to just over 300 km/hr on our short journey

The picture below is of Isabel wearing a rather cute Chinese costume I brought back. Anja would not wear hers for some reason, not for some time anyhow!
