Shanghai update

Damn that soup was spicy! Good thing I had some sweet fried pan rice-egg things afterwards.

Anyway, things are going better, we got a proper internet connection, we have a screen (which is the best we've had for The Gate so far)... basically, things need to be adjusted, but it's working.

Blabla details on http://imal.org/TheGate

Tomorrow we'll try the World Expo. G'dnight!


..burnt. So now I look like a stupid white tourist (by being red, if it makes sense)

I also had an Ukrainian Brotsch for lunch. And shark's fin for dinner. With deep-fried taro balls as dessert (oh yum).

The Shanghai Expo is... ok. Too many queues, I only visited Finland, a small country I forgot the name of, and Cuba (which was quickly visited. Rum, cigars). The european zone is actually a bit boring in its "having everything interesting hidden in a pavilion you can't get inside". The Asian and Middle-Eastern pavilions gave more to see to the people being outside. And the African Union space (whatever it was called) wasn't uninteresting at all (and way more accessible).
But nothing surprising either, anywhere. And so many people!

Still a few things to fix for The Gate, but it should be fine.

Bonne nuit.
