Shanghai, China is a fascinating ultra-modern city. At breathtaking speed it developed from a small port to an international metropolis and paradise for global adventurers. And although the Chinese government restricts the movement of its own people from the countryside to the cities as well as the number of babies a couple is allowed to raise Shanghai keeps growing and growing.
But life in the back alleys of Old Shanghai hasn't changed that much. The residents have not changed much either. You can see the drying clothes outside, little plants in front of the doors, the basins to wash the vegetables but also to do your toilet; in the windows sausages or fish are hanging to dry beside some socks or bras; fine hand made bird cages hang or stand in the windows ... a labyrinth of streets which are stuffed with peoples life.
