Shanghai Expo ..

Sorry for the week's absence. I was in Shanghai the last few days to attend a technology conference and got an opportunity to visit the Shanghai Expo. It was an exhilarating experience !

First impressions of Shanghai :

a) State of art infrastructure and amazing variety in architecture. From skyscrapers to French style town houses to HK style tall apartments, the heterogeneity is mind boggling.

b) The city has a great mix of old world and new age feel.

The Expo defies description. It is so massive that it would take at least two weeks to see it all. The China, Saudi pavilions stood out with their unique architecture. Wish I had spent more time there. Now off to San Francisco for a few days.
