The Exotic East
I cut the hair of a fellow Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations major last night, and we talked about which "East" is more exotic (which apparently means, has more mist in its weather patterns). He maintained that the Far East is more "mysterious" (or is it "mist-erious"? gag.) than the Near East, and after seeing these pictures of Shanghai on Greenlaundry, I am inclined to agree.
