Brief China Notes and Weekly Roundup

Email  Print Print  

Hey everyone, I’m currently living it up in China and will be for another week or so, poking my head in from time to time to make sure things are okay when I have some free time. The trip has been great so far, we’ve been able to see a lot of the sights in the Shanghai, Huangshan and neighboring regions and now we’re in the midst of buying a lot of goodies to bring back to the states, many of which are wedding related. (yikes) There’s a tremendous amount of construction and growth in the city of Shanghai, much more so than one could picture without actually seeing pictures or coming here. The disparity in wealth is staggering, even within the city itself, you have people driving million dollars cars able to get out and eat dinner for 8 for under $25 USD (and it’s phenomenal food too). Want a tailored suit? $75. Tailored shirts? $12. Silk ties? $1.50. It’s stunning.

The city itself is amazing to look at as well, it’s like they took pictures out of what Asimov would’ve envisioned for the future and built it, lots of glass buildings with unique and quite imaginative designs. Perhaps pictures will be up in the future, until then, feast on these domestic treats:

    I see you’ve found at least one of the soft spinning markets. I got 2 tailored suits for $180 while I was there. I assume you’ve found one of the “knockoff” markets too? I got a “Spyder” ski jacket and pants for $40 total. The only expensive part about China is getting there! My favorite Chinese phrase – Bu Yao (no want), best for use with the agressive marketeers.
