12 April

The reason for the pictures of the meals is to reassure my wife that I am eating reasonably well.

This was a short but effective day of business research. Since it was a very dull rainy day I decided to do some analysis on the occupancy rates in the highrise buildings around Pudong. I was surprised with how much space is unused. It appears to me that the utilization rate in both residential and commercial buildings is somewhat slower than the building rate and the number of buildings now under construction is quite high. I walked from the Oriental Pearl Tower to my hotel, a distance of 7 or 8 Km. I took a little more than 2 hours of walking plus the time to check out the buildings and take pictures.
