Day Two Hundred Eleven, August 21, 2011

back to the city of lights

The first thing that amazes me coming back to Shanghai is the abundance of artificial light. Chinese people love lights, in their toys, on their cars, on their bodies, in their skies, on their buildings,  in their windows, on their pens,… everywhere. You cannot escape being almost blinded by lazer light salespeople roaming the streets and pointing their dangerous lights into your unsuspecting eyes. It is the culture that invented fireworks and celebrates it as an omen of good luck. It is a stark contrast to the quiet and moon lit nights I got to experience on this long trip.

Wake up! You’re in Shanghai!
