Shanghai is a gigantic city (2010 metro population: 34 million) that was growing by upwards of a million new people every year in a country with a swiftly expanding GDP per capita--but one that is still only just above $13,000 (US, adjusted for PPP). Quite frankly, under the circumstances, I am amazed that the city looks so good...compared to say, Delhi?

I am looking forward to seeing the changes since I visited last in 2012. I am back in June this year.
