The Shanghai Science and Technology Museum is a neat place to spend part of a day. My favorite spot, however, was the exterior!
In the fall of 2006, my coworkers at the Shanghai International School of Health Sciences moved into our brand new campus on the outskirts of Shanghai. It’s now in the middle of a bustling community, but here are some early photos from when the paint wasn’t even dry.

Featured in the film Master and Commander, this outstanding modern replica of a sailing ship, though half the size of The Star of India, is still well worth the visit. This was a new addition at the Maritime Museum of San Diego the last time I went in 2006. My two little pictures don’t do…
