Me and Chairman Mao
  Light bright.
Sorry for the post-vomiting, but I'm actually leaving Shanghai on Saturday, so I'm trying to post all the stuff I'm been meaning to put up for a while now. (Yes, I'm leaving for good, but I'm going home via a lot of interesting places, so Le Blog will continue for a while.) The more I think about it, the more I remember stuff that I've been meaning to post, but I guess at some point someone has to stop the insanity, and now that the crazy blond lady who used to say that all the time hasn't been heard from for years (thank God, by the way), I'll have to do it myself.

But before I do, here are some pics of my neighborhood at night. (That's Xujiahui--shoe-gee-ah-hway--for those of you playing along at home.) It's not the Bund (see
here and here and here, among other places), but it's still pretty crazy. Tokyo-esque, if you will. However, you can judge for yourself, because here's a bunch of pictures with a minimum of commentary (an actual minimum, for once):

This is the Grand Gateway, which I have mentioned frequently in the past (including here):

Me, having fun with shutter speed--the only setting on my camera I know how to use besides "automatic." Seriously,how the hell do you use aperature?

Same guy, but this time he's not moving his head. I have no idea why he was just sitting there--he didn't move for at least five minutes--but it let me take some decent pictures, and you can't argue with that. Well, you can, but not with me, which is pretty much the same thing as far as I'm concerned:

It is weird for malls to have mirrored windows, right? I thought so. But it did give me a chance to take a self-portrait of sorts, which was nice.

Stay tuned for one last Shanghai-based post ....
