Hello Shanghai

I came to know that Blogger (blogspot) is one of the websites that are currently blocked in China.

So if you are on Wordpress or Blogger platform, you are unlikely to be able to share your story while visiting the land of the dragon.

We visited Shanghai amid news that H7N9 bird flu is spreading in China, and we were there when Sichuan was rocked by an earthquake measuring 7.0 on the Richter scale killing at least 160 people.

But other than that, it was a great trip.

I took this picture using the iPhone during hazy morning. Will share more pics taken with DSLR once they are ready.

It's good to be back blogging.

It was a great experience. Unfortunately the first few days were hazy (or should I say dusty & smoggy)
