It’s Friday morning here in Shanghai. My AP students are in the middle of their Macro Unit 2 test on Aggregate Demand and Aggregate Supply. I’m reading SAS’s weekly Parent Talk newsletter that I handed out to my homeroom this morning, and on the back cover is an advertisement for the housing compound across the street from school, “Rancho Santa Fe”.
I just had to post this to my blog, as I think it captures well the trajectory that rich, suburban, Shanghaites are heading as Shanghai and the other Eastern provinces continue to develop and get rich.
“Success has many stages.
Acquiring a definitive territory counts as the ultimate one.
Embracing the best nature and humanity have to offer.
Rancho Santa Fe Phase 3 is a magnum opus of a villa residence.
Opulent in elegance. Bountiful in spirit.
The grandeur lies not only in heritage, but the entirety of all that is perfect.”
I hope you enjoyed this as much as I did. Happy Friday!
