From One Zoo to Another

It is like out of the frying pan into the fire. Suzhou station is a real zoo and unfortunately all roads and rail tracks seem to lead to it. It was a relief to get away to the urban throngs of downtown Shanghai yesterday. Basking in the sun on the Bund, entering a former bank with all its marble and my imaginary account, dreamland. Found the site of the founding of the Communist Party in the French Concession, quite a search. Train to Beijing to-day. Cheers.
