Shanghai, Nice to Meet You Again!
Hello, my name is Connor Vlahos (韦恒), and I am studying Finance and International Relations at ANU. I had the honour of taking part in the ECNU-ANU four-week Chinese Intensive Summer Program which was funded by ANU and the Australian center on China in the World.
This was my second time in Shanghai, and this trip made me understand why Shanghai is often referred to as a magical city in China. From its lively center to its beautiful gardens, Shanghai has it all.
