I am enjoying my vacation in Shanghai, China. It’s a totally different world here. One of the things I’ve noticed is the price of gas. I took this picture today:
We paid 4.03 Chinese yuan per liter, that’s approximately 2 USD per gallon. When I left the US, gas was around 3 USD per gallon. I wonder why gas is cheaper in China!
One other thing I’ve noticed is that blogspot.com is blocked in China. Mike Friedman warned me about this. With blogspot.com unreachable, I won’t be able to follow many of my favorite Oracle and ColdFusion blogs. Oh well! I guess I’ll spend less time on the Internet and more time vacationing.
