Oriental Green Boat

You can check out the CNNgo story Frances and I did here

On Sunday, Frances and I caught a bus out to Oriental Green Boat Land in the suburbs of Shanghai. It’s one of the stranger places I think I’ve been to. It’s a holiday resort but with a military theme. The centerpiece of it all is a replica aircraft carrier, which houses a musuem to State Security. They also have a large assortment of mothballed fighter jets all over the place and a large “battlefield” complete with trenches and rusty barbed wire.  All in all a pretty interesting place to spend an afternoon, and they have go-karts.
