Allright, already…

I am getting the impression that you all would have been on the Chinese guy’s side…

Anyway, prior to the Sunday debacle, we spent Saturday evening enjoying the sights and sounds of Nanjing Road East and the Bund. These entertainers seem to just spontaneously start up.

Historic Laszlo Hudec-designed Art Deco cinema in People’s Square

Known to foreigners as ‘the best cinema of the Far East’, the Grand Cinema was frequented by Shanghai’s glitterati in its 1930s heyday. A Laszlo Hudec work, it was completed in 1933 and was the height of technological innovation – each seat had a translation system installed so that the Chinese audience could enjoy the foreign-language films through individual earpieces.

And across the Huangpu River from Mao is Pudong – not an area he would have likely approved of.

This was a matched set – the shoes and the pants. You can just see some sparkles up near her knees – but her entire pants were sparkles.
