Back to the Bund a few days before I left Shanghai. As this was the period of the 2010 World Exposition, they keep the lights on all night. The buildings are stunning. Heavy police presence, but what was more unsettling was the enormous crowd. All non-Shanghainese out of towners. But I was there that night too, so what does that make me...
The way they project the lights, the grand outlines of the buildings - this is my city, a cosmopolitan urban paradise like no other.
