China Shanghai Bund Curry

6 May 2018

Fully bunded area

Go to Shanghai, walk along the bund, take photos of big buildings, get approached by girls wanting to show you their art or take you to a tea house. Thats the general order of things.
A bit of very light rain meant I had most of the bund to myself. Actually all of Shanghai seems very quiet, I suspect that compared to other cities in China it actually is. I even noticed this riding the subway back to my hotel, on a Sunday night through peoples square, I could get a seat.

As for the teahouse scammer girls, I of course agreed to go with them for tea tasting, after telling them this is my first time in China and I had arrived at the airport earlier today. They spoke wonderful English.
So off we stroll along the boardwalk, they try to take me in one direction I walk in another, they follow and ask me to please come with them, they know the way. They continued to follow me thinking I just wanted to see the view for quite some time until I told them in fluent Chinese that we would first visit the police station over here where I can explain to them that you are trying to rob me. They ran off. I ran after them yelling PLEASE SELL ME SOME VERY EXPENSIVE TEA!

A small amount of barely noticeable rain meant I had the place to myself. I took my pants off and screamed nonsense at the top of my lungs to celebrate, then collapsed into a coughing fit. Yes my cough is still terrible.


China-Shanghai-Bund-Curry - The rain stopped as I was back at the busy bit, but its really not as busy as I would expect at this time on a Sunday.

A bit later and I was at the overseas passenger terminal. I couldnt get a decent photo, but they were filming a tv commercial on the dock for a new electric SUV. I could however photograph a passing neon pirate ship.


China-Shanghai-Bund-Curry - There are also other big colorful buildings around here, and gardens.

I thought if I followed the rainbow road I would surely find my dinner. Sydney continues to have ongoing debates about a rainbow painted on the road, meanwhile China has built a kilometre long lit up version to guide all the homosexuals to the mall.


China-Shanghai-Bund-Curry - In the mall I found Japanese curry. It is a small serve and vegetarian, but very nice. There are a lot more non Chinese food options in Shanghai.
