Nur Fliegen ist schöner (Only flying beats that)

I arrived in Shanghai this afternoon (see also next post). Shanghai's Pudong Airport is quite outside of the city and, depending on traffic condition can take 1-3 hours to get into the city. Unless of course you entrust yourself some German build technology: The Shanghai Maglev, the first permanent duty Transrapid. A Maglev is kind of a plane on rails. While running along rails it doesn't touch them. This allow the train to go damn fast.

Maglev at 430kmh

You attach wings and it takes off. The trip was even shortened by a nice chat with Dr. Whitla from the Department of Marketing & International Business of the Lingnan University Hong Kong, who happened to wait for the train with me.
