This is essentially not a travel blog. I’ve lived in Shanghai since Sept, 2010 and planning to stay on longer to learn about the impossible language. And in this new setting, feeling sometimes as if I were from a different planet, I intend to collect some of my, shamefully prejudiced yet not ill-willed, impressions here.

As Jonathan, a Canadian-born Chinese friend, said this afternoon: Everything’s possible in Shanghai. Just pay for it.
