Shanghai is a beautiful and elegant city. i felt like New York or Paris. Great shops and Malls, big boulevards, incredible buildings. Stay too short only three days, everybody is preparing for the big 2010 world fair. I went to this magnificent show of acrobatics in Beijing... It was really something because i had the third row and literally saw all acrobats either in front or above me. Impressive stunts and light show. Didn't like to much the costumes, kind of overdone for me. Anyways a very good and old show. (this kind of acrobatics have around for 2000 years). it is a must if you are visiting old Pekin. Also i attend the Chinese Opera; by all means exquisite performance by the actors, actresses. The music superb.  The great wall as i imagined but better with some snow left from last week.  Forbidden city, Heavens and Summer palaces just took me by surprise.  Perfection and great taste in every detail.  Finally the Tian a Min Square where i could see both powers, Chinese and American together.  Red and striped flags because that day Obama arrived at Beijing. China is no doubts a huge country with a bright future.  I think next year will become the second largest economy in the world.  Growing at 12% annually is just a matter of time for them to be Number 1... And then?   Nobody really knows.
