A couple of years ago I wrote a post about The Packing Formula.
My packing for trips is mostly formulaic. I just have to adjust the inputs.
This trip is a little shorter than usual, so it affects the formula in an interesting way. I will usually over pack on a shorter trip as I need to make sure I fill up my suitcase. It is not that I pack things I don’t need, it is that I will sometimes dress down in the evenings instead of wearing my work clothes all day.
On this trip I am off to Shanghai to teach a one week course. I will most likely not spend much time in traffic as the course will be at the hotel I am staying at. That is good as I affectionately call traffic there The Shanghai Derby.
You can see a night picture from Nanjing Road by clicking on Shanghai Nights.
Of course, I am also looking forward to the good food in Shanghai. I also like the way that food is presented in China, especially when they put The Whole Fish on the plate.
There is a good chance that I will not be able to post during the trip. During my last trip to Shanghai I had to go On Hiatus as I had difficulty accessing wordpress during the trip. Maybe it will be better this time.
Now to finish packing!
