Shanghai - Around Town - Part Two

More photos from around town.

Spotted 2 electric cars in one day. First this BYD Qin, a plug-in hybrid designed and manufactured in China, parked just outside Grandmother's apartment. I like the color.

Then after it attempted to run us over (sort of - not really - it's very quiet at low speeds of course), Sun-Ling's cousin whose father is part owner in an Audi dealership ID'ed this Tesla S - first Tesla I've seen anywhere.

Sun-Ling's cousin is a pastry chef. We headed over to her apartment to make some treats. Well...to watch her make this amazing cream puff. It was very tasty!

Then out to The Urban Harvest for dinner as guests of cousin's parent where your salad greens are freshly cut and the restaurant napkin logo appears to be very similar to the Google+ icon.

It's Spring in Shanghai with the weather alternating between chilly, rainy, and pleasant....Free bikes.

Oh those veggie pot stickers look good! Please tell your grandmother hello for me. It is hard to believe that it has been twenty years since I have seen here. Time is going by so fast.
