Visualising a spherical triangle

I would like to visualize the a spherical triangle between Bremen (Germany),
Chicago and Shanghai on the world sphere. Although there are some notebooks
on the Documentation Project which deal with spherical triangles, I had
trouble understanding them (being rather new to mathematica), and I could
not find a way to modify any of them to my purpose.

Could you tell me how to visualize a spherical triangle? Or (if this is
easier) how to modify an existing notebook to visualize it?
