Lookbook: Celfie in Shanghai9/15/2014
- We took the metro from the Shanghai airport to our hotel. Metros are kinda crazy as everyone tries to get off at the same time everyone tries to get on.
- Nanjing Road is always happening. Reminds me of Grafton Street in Dublin or even South Beach.
- It can be difficult knowing what you're eating at restaurants when you don't speak any Chinese. Can only say Xie Xie (thank you) and Ni Hao (hello) for so long.
- Not sure how people cross intersections so calmly with all the mopeds, motorized bikes and car honks.
- Always get the duck.
- It's hot in China (although it was hotter in Texas) so you'll see a lot of guys with their shirts up.
- Yes to the tea house, even if you're not a big tea drinker. Cool experience--interesting teas.
- Try to run into hotels to use the bathroom as various public places are only equipped with holes in the ground.
- If possible, cable car up The Great Wall and go down via the toboggan.
- If you happen to be a black woman, like I am, then you will get stared at constantly. When visiting Tiananmen Square and The Forbidden City, pretty much 90% of the people there were gawking at me. One guy even stopped to talk to me in Mandarin. I don't know any Mandarin (as explained above). One family even saddled up next to me at one point and took a photo with me. I swear they either thought I was Rihanna or a martian.
