    Excellent writing...concise and helpful...and, I must say, I found the Starbucks in the French Quarter to be the same, yet different from the USA; they had amazing treats...especiall the caramel pudding roll. Thanks for the info.

    Great page on Shanghai. I liked in particular the parts on the Shanghai Museum. Need more pics though on the Bund and the harbor.
