ONCE UPON A TUESDAY IN SHANGHAI…
I planned to ride bikes all day.
And I did indeed ride bikes all day. First, I went to the flower market.
Where there are hundreds of flower stalls.
Selling hundreds of flowers.
They sell orchid flowers...
And red carnation flowers...
And yellow long stem flowers with pom-poms on top.
Outside the flower market, there's a very strange building.
That has a Lady Liberty on top???
Next I went to the M50 Galleries on Moganshan Lu
Where the Shun Art Gallery was by far my favorite.
The art was clever and beautiful. There were even nice girls working there and hideous leather couches. What's not to love?
I must admit that I wasn't very excited about the rest of the galleries. Instead, I was taken by the sinks...
And the cracked wall paint...
And the sidewalk planter...
And the stair well with the antique light fixture and stacks of doors.
Next I took my bike for a photo shoot in front of a blue wall, where scribbles aren't allowed.
In the yellow parts, Mother nature is trying to take this building back.
Across the street was this amazing structure which is either in the middle of demolition, or never finished construction. Or both.
On the way home, I stopped by the UHA shop. I stopped because I liked the pink mascot, and I discovered that UHA is a chocolate brand. Kind of like Chinese Godiva, but cooler.
I also stopped by a pedestrian street filled with food vendors.
And I took a self portrait.
And finally, I made my way back home and my beau was there. We cooked dinner and lived happily ever after.
