Tomorrow Dev and I head off for India. By the time we return, it will be March and, we expect, the end of winter in Shanghai. I have posted a new selection of winter photos on our Flickr page under the heading "Shanghai (Winter 2006)." Highlights include our abusive neighborhood flower vendor, "psychos or drunkards", dueling DVD stores, New Year's decorations for the year of the pig, dog pelts for sale, fireworks, styrofoam transport, brunch, and Dev's back after undergoing cupping.
