The tenthousandst picture I took with this camera since I got it for Christmas 2006 shows a ship on Huangpu River and the Oriental Pearl Tower in Pudong seen from Gucheng Park.

Waiting for the worst food so far.

I’ve been gnawing on one of the wooden things in front without any effect before I finally gave up. The other dishes weren’t much better.

Funny thing to pump water. We thought we’d help them by using it but it actually cost one Yuan.

I didn’t know that we were in the street of bonbon. It’ll take more time to get to know the city.

No idea what the man’s doing there. He was holding on to the shrub in a weird position without moving.

Many people take their birds for a walk and hang them in the trees. Good for the sound, not so good for the birds, I assume. But if they’re always in the small cages then the new environment might be a welcome change.

Notice the old man at the beginning. He’s pushing his wheelchair. Seems to be some kind of hobby amongst older people. I see one or two of them per week.

You have to pay 10 Yuan (about 1 Euro) to get into Shanghai’s largest park and can’t walk around in the evening because it closes at 6 pm.

Spring starts

As interesting as computer networks may be, learning for an exam is none of my favorite pastimes. And it was so beautiful outside. The sun shone, people left their winter coats at home, the city began to be in bloom.

Knut

Preparing for our trip to Stockholm a friend and I ate at IKEA. The man at the table next to us had a yellow toothpick flag in his meat. The text – “Knut” – was quite funny though it was refering to St. Knut’s Day, not the famous polar bear.

Botanical Garden München-Nymphenburg

I’ve been to the Botanical Garden München-Nymphenburg on Wednesday and regret that I haven’t visited it before.
