"w**** of the Orient, Paris of the East".... Shanghai! From the natural beauty of Tiger leaping Gorge to the heaving urban metropolis of Shanghai, I've seen it all now! YSL, Dior, Chanel, bars, rastaurants, cakes shops, clubs, dirt and sweat, there is nothing this place doesnt have!! We even got our hair cut in Tony and Guy (for less that half the price!) We have indulged: Our minds, in the strange modern art gallery where, the chinese tourists insist upon taking photos of all the pieces instead of actually looking at them.... Our bodies, in the Endless shopping streets of Shanghai.... and our souls, in the smooth melodies of an underground Shanghainese Jazz club. The news is that I have decided to stay! I am currently looking for a teaching job. On a teachers wage I can afford a luxury flat with a concierge service, swimming pool and gym. Not bad, hey! I will stay (hopefully) until Christmas when I am going on the Australia to meet Emski. Gary has now left for Ningbo University and tomorrow I am off to Beijing for a few days to visit Josh. Jono and Angus will also be there so it may prove to be a bit of a reunion. Thanks again for all the messages, I really enjoy recieving them, makes home that little bit closer. I will get the photos up soon I promise, all my love Naomi.
