A View From Above

The view from our 29th floor, Shanghai-home-for-a-month is absolutely breath taking. What can I say, it's the city of luxury and the MEGA of endless skyscrapers, seriously.
Where we are staying is almost like norcal in many aspects,the ratio of Asian to non-Asian population is close to 50 50 from what I observed. My fear of feeling slightly out of place was completely replaced by a new found sense of familiarity and curiosity.

Tennis courts have become a staple in luxury high raises.

I can't see an end to this sea of skyscrappers

Not every inch of Shanghai's occupied by buildings, you can actually find green areas here too, which is a lot different from what I remembered.
