I am young researcher who loves life and especially...the little pleasures of life that make our day better. I hope you will like my photos/impressions and posts with tiny things that caught my attention and made me smile :) Enjoy!
The sun is sleeping quietely.... by littlepleasureslife


When I think about Shanghai the first thing that comes in my mind is the bloody sunset I have seen from the Oriental Pearl Tower, which is a 468 meters tower, located in the business district of Shanghai.

The tower has also transparent glass floors at the last floor so that you can experience a unique feeling of walking up high in the sky while seeing everything that's down at the base of the tower.

The experience was quite noisy and extremely busy, but that is normal in China.

If you like to see the city from the Huangpu River, do not hesitate to take a cruise and enjoy a ride in near the Bund, while admiring the futuristic architecture raising near the river. Shanghai is in a continuous development, there are many buildings raising every day. It's a city that moves, and evolves. And it has a particular look, far away from the traditional Chinese cities out there.

Shanghai wants to be a new and modern metropola with luxurious shops, attracting many european/american investors, fancy restaurants, ridiculous prices for coffee or ice-cream such as Häagen-Dazs which in Europe is considered not big of a deal, simply an ordinary tasty ice-cream.
Modern architecture like the one presented below, gives a futuristic air to this city.

The best expression I would choose for Shanghai is a "city of contrasts"...Behind the bling bling and the glam from the Bund I witnessed extremely poor people washing in communal baths and living in outrageous conditions. Some of them are tying to sell out fish, some of them simple objects. Looking around I was shocked and impressed by the contradiction between the rich and the poor. In the bund you could see a lot of young and beautiful Chinese women wearing Prada, Versace, etc., and one street behind you could see simple country women trying to make a living and selling out eggs or fish.
