Summer in the old alley~ Shanghai

smoking his way through the last hot days of summer

Each time I start a new walk into one of the old alleys of Shanghai, I feel as though I am entering another world where simple life, community feeling, tradition and open communication thrive. There is a charm to the old alleys and a distinct sense of nostalgia that makes them so attractive and keeps me coming back. As long as they are there, the spirit and essence of Shanghai continue to live on.

  1. I know exactly what you mean. I lived in one of these old alleys of Shanghai for five years. It was a great memorable experience. I knew all my neighbours and would chat with them on my way to the front door. It wasn’t the sanitised version of Shanghai but I loved it.
