China Shanghai Pho Rain

3 November 2011

Nanjing road West

Generally, people head east along Najing road, at least according to the internet, as thats where the bund is. I decided to head west instead.
It was a strange sort of a night, it seemed very clear, despite having just rained (again), and the clouds seemed to be just above the tops of buildings.
My top tip for finding places to eat, is to go one street back from the main roads, the rule seems to be on the main roads you have clothes shops, watch shops and mall entrances, and one street back you have all the small independent restaurants.
2 streets back is scooter repair shops, mahjong dens, 3 streets back for opium dens, illegal kidney harvesting etc.

I had Pho for dinner, yes Vietnamese. At least they share a border with China.
The drink was fantastic, I ordered it, and the waitress walked out of the restaurant to the nearby coco tea drink shop and ordered it, paid cash, then carried it back to my table.
Young coconut milk with grass jelly.

On the walk home, I stumbled into the cool Jing an sculpture park. Open until 10pm and lit with artistic lighting.
As well as sculptures there were lots of old people, some doing speed walking around a marked path, and some ballroom dancing in a very dark area, complete with boom box blasting.

Also, cats seem to live here and be well looked after by the army of old people, and they seem to get along with tiny useless dogs people have brought into the park with them. I didnt think that was possible?

I appear here as a ghost because this was a 15 second exposure and I stood as still as I could for only about 10 seconds.
