Warm Greetings

At the Grand Hyatt Shanghai at the Jin Mao Tower in Pudong, Chinese characters greeted visitors.

What was unusual was they were not only in old Chinese script, but also written with brush and ink, a rarity these days where text messaging is more popular.

Inside the lobby of the five-star hotel behind these characters was a giant piece of paper with fu or good fortune on it, also in Chinese calligraphy.

It's good to know some are still trying to preserve the traditional ways of doing things no matter how posh they are.
