The NYC of China

Last updated by xshe at 2011/4/13; Destinations:

I was born in this most populated city in China.

When I was little, my world was confined to the little playground 5 min walk from grandma's house and our home. We lived in what it was called a Xin Cun, literally a "new village". Childhood memories were always filled with good street food, flowers that blossomed around March, lantern festivals during the Chinese New Year, and fire crackers on New Year's Eve.

Only after I left the city about 15 years ago, I realized how big and cosmopolitan Shanghai is. After being in different cities in Europe and America, I finally began to see the similarity between Shanghai and NYC, and all the wonderful opportunities that the big city offers to people with different dreams and backgrounds.
