As I didn’t realize it until I returned I will share this with you right now: Shanghai is the LARGEST CITY IN THE WORLD with 24 mil residents! Wow.
What an amazing trip! Stephanie Turkal, Louis Wu, Daniel Ward and I had the time of our lives every minute, even enjoying the marathon flight. Our layover in Seoul was made more than tolerable by the gorgeous new airport boasting such ameneties as free showers, massage chairs and cultural museums, as well as activities. There were more high-end international leather goods shops then I knew existed!
I got to do an art project, tamp-printing the Korean “alphabet”
Even the restrooms were swank. If anyone knows what this is, please let me know!
We made it to Shanghai and immediatly set off on a 4 hour walk.
I loved the street markets, where the menu was laid out before your eyes.
One of my favorite street foods were the roasted chestnuts, which we all enjoyed as we walked and walked…Take a look on youtube- the streets were vibrant!
We were so worn out that we didn’t even think of taking pictures of the gorgeous organic gourmet meal we ate. We went bak to the hotel and collapsed, exhausted.
The next day we got up bright and early for the trade show….
