Old & New

Shanghai is a city in the throes of rapid destruction, rebirth , and change. Show someone the city from 20 years ago and the city of today and its virtually unrecognizable. Skyscrapers pop-up , new metro lines spread under the ground like earthworms digging, the old is demolished , and the new sprouts up. The pace of change here is incredible. The subway line I take to work was put in 6 months before I moved here and now a new line is being constructed even closer to my house. I can’t even imagine the city in 10 more years.

I was just doing some bike riding along the Suzhou Creek on Guangfu road (光复路) and took a couple of photos I thought really illustrated the old and new of SH. Another great place to witness this is in Old Town. Where you see the old style Shanghai with the new style Pudong skyline soaring overhead. I would have photos but my camera died yesterday.

Unfortunately I have problems with posting single photos on here but check out the gallery!
