We went to Shanghai for a few days, mainly to see the Expo.

It was hot, very crowded, and eye opening at the same time. In hind-sight, we could have arrange the visit better.

Perhaps there is still time to go before the Expo ends in Oct.

I have taken thousands of pictures. I am not going to post them in chronological orders. Just some random themes, whenever I have time and the mood to process the pictures.

The first theme to post is the 武當太極 Wudang Taiji show inside the Expo. They are all real young Taoist "Priests" in training. I used the word "Priest" for the lack of better word, since the English word priest may conjure up an image of someone preaching or hosting rituals. This is not the case here.

Anyway, this group of young Taoists are the real deals. Not just from any Kung Fu schools. They simply radiated confidence, focus and calmness. The movement was strong, decisive yet fully controlled. It was really a pleasure watching them.

The first set is Taiji Sword.

Even the young Taoist reciting scribes at the back was extremely calm and controlled, as the reciting part of the overall training.

I have been very lazy in processing & posting the pictures. I am afraid that after 18 months, my memory of the trip was not as fresh or accurate.

But anyway, here we go...

For this trip, we took the relatively unusual transport - through train from Hong Kong to Shanghai!

My kids were excited, for the initial few hours. But after a while, the novelty worn out.
