Back to China we go

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.

Shenzhen Skyline at night.


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…


…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).
