A Few Places In Shanghai

I remembered, about an hour ago, that I have Google Earth installed. I was pretty pleased to remember this, as I’m trying very hard to avoid my latest programming assignment. Those assignments are the only ones I avoid, because the hurt my little brain.

Anyway… Shortly after remembering I have Google Earth installed, I also remembered that I was never able to find 锦秋花园 (jÄ«nqiÅ«hÅ«ayuán), which is where I lived while I was in China. 锦秋花园 is a very nice property development. I’ve mentioned before, the security there is excellent. They guards are all dressed in military-looking uniforms, and apparently have all been in the army at some point. They are very efficient. I also said earlier – I would not want to irritate them too much.

You can view this on Google Maps here.

Across the road (to the south) one can see the Shanghai University’s 宝山(bāoshān) campus. It is large. I also found the $2 park, which can also be seen on Google Maps here.

Worth every penny

Worth every penny

That is all I have now, I’ll add some more later.

I guess I’d better start thinking about my assignment.
