Achas Ve'achas' travel photo album.

Disclaimer: while this album was inspired by Suave's thread, it will not be nearly as epic...

Shanghai, China:








Pudong skyline (the sky never got any bluer than this)














Shanghai Museum

It's even more vertigo inducing in real life. You go out of the elevator facing the wall and then you turn around and it's right there...

Yup! In those 2 weeks I learned how much of what we call "necessities" are really luxuries (2 weeks with no DDF!!! :o )
