On the belt, now

Metro x-ray

I was not expecting this. The first time stepping into the Shanghai Metro, a jarring reminder of the heightened security around the whole city. Everyone's bag had to go through an x-ray, just like at the airport. Everyone. With an already busy subway system, you can imagine the delays this causes. But as I wrote earlier, the Shanghainese are enduring, cooperating to make sure that the Expo runs without blemish. And they allowed me to bring a pair of new kitchen shears I had bought into the station.
