Gavin Newsom is flying through the starry skies heading to one of my favorite cities in the world, Shanghai, to spread his arms and glow all over everyone in China. He’ll be there with former mayors Willie Brown, Frank Jordan, some city officials and business types and the Glide Memorial Choir, for obvious reasons.
I figured for old times’ sake, let’s take an educated guess at a day in the Mayor’s itinerary. Shanghai’s a big place with loads to do, but come on. I’m willing to bet this is 84% accurate.
