Have you missed me? I have spent the last two weeks in China visiting the incredible city of Shanghai. Internet access was extremely limited...no Google, no Facebook, unless you have a government monitored internet cable. I did not teach a workshop. I did however host a Girlfriend Sex Talk with some awesome women expats in their 20's. Most of my trip was for pleasure and visiting with my son who is teaching English in Shanghai. Talk about having to marshall your energy when you are teaching and entertaining 5 & 6 year olds.
What struck me about Shanghai and how it relates to intimacy is the art of being able to integrate the old with the new. Shanghai is a city that has modernized quickly in the last decade. In fact the whole city skyline pictured above has only been in existence for the last twenty years. While parts of Shanghai are very cosmopolitan and sophisticated, there are still other parts that are quite traditional. It is this combination that make Shanghai such a fascinating city to visit and one that you will never tire of.
