Quite a few things changed in the last weeks and I’m having a hard time to schedule some blogging-time into my new routine. Anyways, the HK posts will continue soon but first, I’d like to share a few pictures of Pudong (east side of the Huangpu River in Shanghai) from last weekend. I had forgotten my camera (yet again), so please excuse the meh quality – these were taken with my phone.
That evening, the boy and I decided to chill on the Pudong Riverside and admire the view of Puxi (west side of river in Shanghai). People (mostly tourists) usually go to the Bund to look at Pudong’s skyscrapers (Oriental Pearl tower, The Bottle Opener, etc).. but this side is quite nice, actually! And there are definitely less people than on the Bund – always a plus 😉
Weeks ago, a friend and I decided to walk around in the not-so-crowded streets of Shanghai. We began our trip at the Shaanxi Nan lu stop and walked down Nanchang lu, a cute street parallel to the busy Huahai zhong lu. It has many little shops and trees on both sides of the road, keeping us in the much-needed shade.
Yesterday, we went to South Huangpi road to take a stroll through the little parks there and then walk towards People’s Square. Unfortunately, a thunderstorm started right when we got out of the metro station! It looked worse than the typhoon we were supposed to get last week.
In a few days, I’ll finally publish pictures (that have been collecting digital dust for the past month) of a nice stroll I took in Shanghai
