We do a lot of walking around Shanghai and take a bunch of photos of random stuff that realy has no place being it’s own post. So I’m going to do a post a little photo journey of stuff we see here in our everyday lives. A lot of it is very different than what we see in the U.S. – people cleaning food on the street, the selling of pets all over the place and some crazy fruit prices.
Awesome David Bowie style mannequin heads in a wig shop near Yu Garden. So fierce!
Crazy shaped ice cream cones at the Super Brand Mall. I think they sell for 20 RMB (3.22 USD)
Just ordering a snack while I wait for my hair to finish processing.
Numerous kinds of tofu that you can buy at the local market.
More huge chunks of fresh tofu.
Jen buying some vegetables at the local market.
Beautifully colorful Chinese money. The U.S. really has boring money compared to the rest of the world.
Really expensive fruit. The cherries for 170ish RMB (27 USD) and the apple for 58 RMB (9.36 USD)
Cleaning scallops on the street.
Dumpling making party.
Rattlesnake restaurant. No, we didn’t try it.
Raisin bike cart in Yu Gardens.
“Oriental Light” a sundial sculpture in Pudong located on Century Ave. by the Science and Technology Museum. French Architect, Jean Marie Charpentier.
China has the best mylar balloons.
The French Concession has Sycamore-lined streets.
Fancy cotton candy in the Yu Garden area.
Pearl TV Tower lit up in Pudong.
Now this one is just super crazy to me. They sell pets on the street and by parks. Like a pet is an impulse buy or something!? Bunnies and hamsters by the park. And the globes are baby turtles in goldfish that we saw being sold outside of a school. Yes. A school. That when they get out of school they could try to get their parents to buy them a pet. So nuts!
And just a little street welding. NBD.
I hope you liked the little glimpse into some of the random stuff that we see walking around Shanghai. There’s a lot going on and sometimes it can be overwhelming, but I love it!
