Life in the Fast Train

I didn't write too much on this blog about my trip to Shanghai back in March and April. I hope to remedy that situation by resurrecting some of the content from my trip journal. Here's a video I did for GlobalAtlanta about the magnetically levitating, or "maglev," train that runs the 19-mile stretch between Shanghai's Pudong International Airport and the Longyang Road subway station at speeds of more than 260 mph.

To read my story about how this blazing-fast technology could be in Georgia's future, click here. My GlobalAtlanta trip blog offers some insights into Shanghai's transportation options as well.
