We move on to C now in our ever expanding Shanghai Alphabet.
Thankfully the city has coffee. The cool thing is we have coffee here from all parts of the world.
American coffee bars, chinese coffee bars, (that look mysteriously like Starbucks) we even have Japanese coffee products including coffee in a can, like a coke, and even coffee gum, when you just can’t get enough of that coffee breath…
Michelle, my wife, and I often try to go to the myriad of concerts that are going on all the time here in Shanghai. The last one we went to was an awesome Jazz concert and the musicians were all from Shanghai. We even got to talk with the musicians afterward, while holding complimentary drinks… cool
Everywhere you go in Shanghai there is construction. Literally. This city keeps you on your toes. You have to be careful about choosing landmarks to remember places by…
perhaps next week, they’ll be torn down. When you look out over the city skyline you can count the cranes and the buildings under construction. Roads, buildings, sidewalks, restaurants, parks, schools, donut shops, offices, you name it, it’s under construction.
Yes, there is a church in Shanghai. Actually there are quite a few. I’m finding new ones everyday. I go to one chuch regularly, ever week. There is one that is closer to my home but doesn’t have an English translation for me to listen to. There are many Catholic churches,
one big one in Xujiahui which is huge and there are many in the outlying suburbs around Shanghai. There are even new churches that are under construction. That is two “C”s.
Home of Chinese food and home of the Chopstick. 2 of course. This is my wife buying chopsticks that we were going to use for our USA wedding. There are chopsticks everywhere. Nice ones and cheap ones and expensive ones and disposable ones
