Looking for a little something to do, we took Metro Line 2 to the Guanglan Lu Station, where Kent's GPS sent us east instead of west and we ended up at a corner with nothing. By now Kent could see Zhangjiang Lu on the screen and we headed in the correct direction.
The Shanghai Animation & Comics Museum is in a building called Zhangjiang Animation Valley:
The museum explained the evolution of animation, starting with cave-dweller paintings of boars:
The Chinese had their shadow puppets with hinged joints:
William Hogarth pioneered sequential art.
Emile Cohl was the father of the animated cartoon.
Władysław Starewicz created stop motion animation with insects:
Ub Iwerks was correctly credited for creating Mickey Mouse:
The Japanese with Doraemon and Astro Boy:
one line so far in Shanghai, built utilizing a system manufactured by the French Translohr company. Service began in 2010.
Since we were "in the area" (Pudong), we took Metro Line 2 to Line 6, got off at the Yunshan Lu station, and walked down Yunshan to Biyun Road. A bit of a walk, but the meal at Yasmine's was worth it!
