Today we spent a very enjoyable time in the Venice of Shanghai; Zhu Jia Jiao. We had a great time in the pituresque and charming town full of ridiculous souvenirs, casual locals playing cards on the riverside and bridges over asian style Gondolas.

I think about sitting in the rickety boat, in the most charming Chinese water town. Its like the Venice of Shanghai, red lanterns swing over my head as we float. The cafe we had green tea in was casual and relaxed on the water edge with bridges dotted around us. The air smells of rice and oil cooking. Old shuttered windows open to little cafes. The morning was -other than walking around and soaking up the atmosphere- spent at the lovely old post office which was simple and traditional. Very old and interesting. I got Manet a shawl with peacocks on it. This place is very peacful. The old town is beautiful and full of antiques and old riverside shuttered shops houses, and  tea houses. We had a really great time walking around town and soaking up the most amazing atmosphere.
