off to Shanghai...

...i'm off to Shanghai tomorrow morning. I'm meeting with a really nice company owned by a husband and wife team. They've been running their factory with great precision for almost 10 years now. But most importantly they're really genuinely nice people. So hard to find. We're talking about a really cool project, so I hope to have some exciting news soon. My fingers are crossed.

While in Shanghai, I can't wait to go to Taikang Lu. This is an old preserved street/neighborhood that has been converted into all things art and cool. Original "Lane" houses restored and converted into artist studios, shops, cafes, and coffee, and awesomeness!◦

Best of luck. I love cafes, artist studios and coffee, sounds like a place I would love.

Bob, If you ever get the chance, go on down to Hengshan Road outside the Hengshan Hotel early in the morning. There is a beautiful park across the street where hundreds of people perform Tai Chi. And across the street, there are more people learning western dance (it's about 6 a.m.). The coolest thing is a barber who has a single chair on the street with battery operated clippers. He cuts your hair while people are dancing behind you.
