Shanghai, here I am!

Frankfurt – Shanghai

everything went smoothly despite the fact that the airline asked me for 680 Euros! for 17 Kilos overweight luggage (Yes, 40 Euros for 1Kg extended luggage). China Eastern Airline… This “special” price was higher than the ticket price… Well, I decided to leave my diving gear in Germany…

Oliver (my flat mate) picked me up from the aiport, the taxi meter price Puxi – Airport Pudong is 165 Renminbi Yuan (RMB.Y), a little more than 17 Euros. Taxis drivers without meter will ask for more than double the price – so my visiting friends: be prepared to bargain hard!

We went to the apartment and than to the office to check out everything. Internet access is available at home and at the office. Some websites, for example youtube.com, are blocked in China. Well guys… but you can’t block all proxies… 😉
And: some Mails will take 9 hours or more to get through…

Jet lag will hit me for some days… but let’s get started…

This is the view from our apartment which wilddesign is providing (the place is called Brilliant City):
