Some more from the Shanghai trip 2010.

This includes me, something I don't often do. These little stores/cafes were just on the streets in random places.

051 Cycle with trailer 2 by Rose McGillicuddy, on Flickr

This was a green area right next to the atrium which connected the two buildings that composomised the hotel we stayed in. My nephew's wife is Mandarin and native of Shanghai, and arranged our accommodation, which was slightly out of the city, but very reasonably priced. Taxis were so cheap, being out a bit was not an issue.

Fremantle Technical School , Western Australia - Dated Buildings and Cornerstones by Andrew Priest, on Flickr

This photograph continues my social history project documenting both the mundane and the interesting in the City of Fremantle and surrounding areas through the medium of Waymarking [see http://waymarking.com]. The image was taken in August 2016.

Whilst the Fremantle Technical School is today known as the Challenger Institute of Technology, which is in turn the South Metropolitan TAFE, it started life in 1913 as a two-story building of brick construction in the federation Free style. It is representative of the development a technical education system for post primary aged children in Western Australia. It appears that the TAFE ceased to use the building in 2001 and in 2019 works where commenced to ready it for sale.

060 Bamboo 2 by Rose McGillicuddy, on Flickr

Shopping area close to our hotel in the suburbs: the contrast between modern and old fascinated me, and I took hundreds of photos showing the contrast.

083 Interesting modern building 2 by Rose McGillicuddy, on Flickr

In NZ there's a general hardware chain of stores, much like Bunnings in Australia. I called this Mitre 10 :):

The Cornish Crepe Co - The Camel Trail, Cornwall, UK - UK2016-84 by Andrew Priest, on Flickr

A tempting food stall as we came into Padstow but we showed resilience headed into town for lunch instead, alas never to taste the delights of the Cornish Crepe Co.

We rode the trail between Wadebridge and Padstow in July 2016.
