On steel tracks

We headed out for a few days outside of Shanghai, to take care of some business. We traveled by train - the city has built a new train station, ShanghaiNan Train Station, to prepare for the 2010 World Expo. Very, very impressive - Union Station doesn't hold a candle to these structures. A circular dome in shape, very much like the wooden MiaoZhu structures of YunNan. The new high-speed train line has also been set up - the trip to HangZhou took but a little over an hour.
