I went to the Shanghai Museum to try and learn a little something about the history of Shanghai. It seems that it has quite the history. It was a great port, an economic miracle, a place where the British brought opium to China by the boatload and left with tea, silk and other goods. It was a place where violence reigned for decades. It was an Asian Wild West. I would have liked to have gotten a little more information on the city, but the museum was closed. Oh well, another day , perhaps.
