My secret project for the end of the year retrospective movie got some great new shots. Just you wait for 31st of December 2008 and see...
After Beijing Olympics closing ceremony, I only had 2 days left so I went to Shanghai, the city in mainland China for Finance & Trade, and thus is a city of international immigrants. I met my Brazilian friend Saulo, now a CEO for China´s branch of an international shipping company. He gave me an insight with a local perspective of the cities Highlights, among them: Shopping, Chinese Massage, the Pudong skyline, tailors that design and deliver a custom suit in 12 hrs
Thank you Saulo!!
Lessons Learned in Beijing Olympics?
* Buy a pre-paid SIM card to use your mobile locally with the friends you meet;
* Have Smoked Peking Duck and pearl prawns with friends @ restaurant near SciTech building;
* Shop in the Silk market, for silk clothes, bags, suitcases, wallets, ties, shirts, and everything you need FOR VERY CHEEP (as 10% of the first price offered, and close the deal in 20%);
* Give up coming just because you have not been able to buy tickets.
But the best was MEETING PEOPLE FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD, in the Olympic Spirit of ONE WORLD - ONE FAMILY!!!
