My trip around Shanghai was interesting to say the least. I met up with one of my friends named Phoebe (not the Phoebe from Wan Yuan) and we just talked for a bit and wondered what we could do in Shanghai. She came up with the idea to just explore the streets of Shanghai. We took line 10 subway to line 2 and then to line 3. The whole time we were messing around and making noise, I felt bad for the people standing next to us.
Once we got out of the subway we started to walk down a unfamiliar road until we came across a wide range of graffiti along a backside street. They had a picture of a panda with a Chinese hat on carrying a ninja sword. The images almost looked like they could jump off the wall and attack you, it was amazing. I couldn't imagine how long a painting like that would take and how hard it would be to spray paint such small spots on a painting without getting paint everywhere. People do crazy things with spray paint I guess.
After we stared at the paintings on a wall we walked into a random art gallery that was about 1 minute away from the spray painting place. The gallery wasn't too impressive. There was about 10 pictures in the whole gallery, I only liked two though. The gallery was selling a statue no bigger then a grown mans hand for 45,000 rmb that was made out of copper.. It wasn't even a good sculpture. -.-
On our way back we got lost once, lost some money in a vending machine and ran up and down subways. Once we got back to Phoebe's house we watched Bambi because I have never seen it before. Apparently it was a big deal that I haven't seen it. We didn't get to finish the movie though because my Dad was on his way to pick me up on the foreigner street.
What makes that day fun and interesting is not the things that we did, but the things we talked about. Go with a good friend to a open space with nothing to do and you will have more fun then going to Disney land with someone you hate or don't know too well.
