BLURB

Red underwear waving in the wind, a loaded green truck, the first and only graffiti wall, skyscrapers in the distance… and you just try not to feel dizzy and fall down. How can you put all of Shanghai into one picture? Leave your room at the Donghu hotel and go take a walk in the park while they are still out there practicing Tai Chi. Fragments of the old and the new Shanghai are everywhere. Who wears such giant underwear? You only get lucky if something red touches your skin every day. You have to try it, it is the Chinese way. Find a nice republican era villa and drink your Oolong tea when the sun comes up. In the morning, when you hang your laundry under the not-so-blue sky (not as blue as on Victory Day), a truck rolls into your street. Somebody’s just putting their last pieces of furniture onto the lorry. They can't wait to move into a new fancy apartment a few blocks up the street. This is how you become a millionaire in a day. Wish you got so lucky? Just finish your tea while behind the tagged wall another block will spring up from the concrete ground like palm trees on a sandy beach. [Andras Gal]
