Lately, I could spend a weekend free during my work in Shanghai. This time, I opt for a quiet strolling in the French concession area and experience more of the ordinary life.
Eileen Chang's 張愛玲 residence. It's only passing by, taking a picture outside the building. She was a very famous writer at her time and is still so nowadays. Her works are often filmed. Famous ones include Lust, Caution and Love in a Fallen City.
Then I turned to Yanqing Road 延慶路 a street with glimpses of ordinary life. Aged nice houses are all the way.
The French Concession area is huge. The obvious characteristic is trees along both sides of streets. Speed is lower and less bustling than the other areas.
