Shanghai Saturday Bike Ride Between Work Emails

Saturday, October 17th, 2009

This Saturday between work phone calls and emails, I went on a morning bike ride with Jamie. Our route took us to a Canon camera repair facility near People’s Park and a meandering ride back along the river. The air was cool and breezy, though a lot of dust was flying around due to construction. It was nice to explore the city without getting wet from either rain or sweat.
