Books at Fudan University (Part 1): Books and Travels in China (6)
Fudan University is one of Shanghai's oldest contemporary universities, found in 1905 by the Chinese scholar and Jesuit Ma Xiangbo (1840-1939). At the center of the university is an enormous set of towers, the Guanghua Towers, which reach nearly 150 meters. Above is an image I took from one of the faculty offices there. Below are other scenes from the university campus, and my visit to the university.
