I just want to cross the road…

Your only way across until the next junction.

One of the cool things about Shanghai: the huge bridges. Circular, square, or shaped like a dragon! – there’s no ground-level crossing these roads.

We saw a random milk tea/drinks shop once while walking back to our hostel, that we would have gone in to for sure, except that it was on the opposite side of the road from us, and going to it would have required walking all the way back to the junction, up, across, and down the bridge, and then walking up the other side of the same road we were just on to get to the drinks shop!! It just wasn’t worth the effort…

Still, I did like the bridges!


About Ibtehaal

I graduated with a degree in Chinese and Economics, which involved spending a year studying Chinese in Beijing. This turned out to be the hardest but most rewarding thing I think I have ever done. I've now returned to China for another year, to study in Shanghai and figure out my next steps.
