Sorry I haven’t been able to post more regularly, getting internet access is extremely difficult.
So Shanghai was amazing! If anyone ever gets the chance to go, I highly recommend it. It is a very foreigner friendly city, although its a bit of a culture shock! Most of the signs are in English (or chinglish), its easy to use the metro, and you can find just about any foreign product.
3 days just wasn’t enough time to take in Shanghai, I can’t wait to go back!
Now im in Yangzhou, its about a 2.5 hours journey north of Shanghai. It’s a “small” Chinese city of about 2 million people.
It feels a million miles away from Shanghai!
No signs in English
No one speaks English
Everyone stares at you
Everyone wants to take pictures of you
But the city still has some of the Chinese madness that I found so entertaining in Shanghai, so im happy here too.
I think the breed of dogs I like must be Chinese because they’re everywhere here. I may not see many pandas but at least there’s dogs that look like big fluffy bears everywhere!
