On a sunny day like this I love to remind myself that I live in Shanghai and there is no better way than a little downtown “trip”. Don’t get me wrong, but when you do school work, laundry or grocery shopping it’s easy to forget how unique and how different from home this place is. Every time I go downtown it hits me that I actually really do live here. And every time I take a walk at the bund it reminds me how happy I’m to be here. Shanghai is truly an amazing city.
