Got back last night from Shanghai, and the F1 Chinese Grand Prix. It was actually a pretty cool event to go check out. I was surprisingly captivated for the entire duration of the race. The race had a pretty good finish with a UK driver, Hamilton, passing the leader (and winner of the first two races of the year, Vettel, from Germany) with just 5 laps to go to win the race. We also saw a couple of fender benders and a flying tire on the turn in front of our section. We sat in a section at the first set of turns after the starting straightaway. The turn had an S shape too it. The fans were quite patriotic, with plenty of fans there representing Spain, Brazil, Germany, Japan, and the UK. The other thing of note from the race: the noise
Also during the weekend, I went to Nanyang school to watch a basketball game involving several of my students from last year. It was good to see the boys, and Flora from Mudu. Pictures of the game are also included.
