From Newark to Beijing to Shenzhen.

 

First we take off from Newark, New Jersey

This is Newark. They say it’s nice in the spring. They lie, they lie big.

 

For a short 14 hour flight to the capital, Beijing, China.

 

Beijing Imperial City
Beijing actually is gorgeous in the Spring.

 

Then a 3.5 hour hop south to Shenzhen.

In 1980 Shenzhen had a population of about 30,000.  By 2010, Shenzhen had a population of about 10.5 million.  That’s smaller than Atlantic City, NJ, to larger than NYC, in 30 years.  It’s a town on the upswing you might say.

Shenzhen is right next to Hong Kong (HK), and is one of, if not the, most hi-tech city in China which makes it one of the most hi-tech cities in the world.

It also has a pirate ship…

Oh yeah, a pirate ship

…because cool cities have their own pirate ship.

A snazzy looking marina too.

Lots of green spaces.

And of course a park with the…

Window-of-the-World-4

…the Eiffel tower just because.

In the morning we’re off again to China, so stay tuned for ‘me doing shit in China’ (just a working title, it needs polishing).
