2008 in Pictures: Part 14
Date Taken: June 8th, 2008
The Nanpu Bridge in southern Shanghai. Traveling across this bridge provides an immensely beautiful view of the city, particularly as you enter from the western side by winding up a giant corkscrew ramp.

Soccer!! The Dalian Shide (in white) take on the Shanghai Shenhua. Shanghai won, 3-1.

A guardian of heaven on display at the Shanghai Museum, one of the country's most renowned collections of artifacts and history. It has over 120,000 pieces in its collection. And it's free! (The museum, that is -- not the guardian.) I think they did it that way to balance out the extreme lack-of-history in the rest of the city ;-)

A Beijing opera performance!! Okay, so there's a little bit of history in Shanghai ;-)
