From Newark to Beijing to Shenzhen.
First we take off from Newark, New Jersey
For a short 14 hour flight to the capital, Beijing, China.
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…
…because cool cities have their own pirate ship.
A snazzy looking marina too.
Lots of green spaces.
And of course a park with the…
…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).
