The 2:15 to Shanghai

In 1989, I was the Project Manager for a project to design and commission the first automated oil pipeline control and SCADA system for a pipeline in China from Dongying to Huangdao in the Shandong Province.

The project was challenging, but I managed my part of the execution to completion.

I did spend some time in Beijing, but most of my time in China was was in the town of Weifang in the Shandong Province.

This story is about a trip that I took from Weifang to Shanghai by train.  I normally flew back to Canada from Beijing, but this time I wanted to do something different and fly out of Shanghai to Vancouver.
