"Blitzkrieg Blink" (闪电战)
"Blitzkrieg Blink" by island6 Art Collective (Liu Dao)
// BLURB //
Welcome to beautiful, sunny Shanghai! I know the plane just landed, but there’s so much to do and you only live once. So let’s get down to business. First, you’ll go to the Bund and take in that Picture Perfect view (while you can). As soon as you’ve had your fill of bizarre tourists, you should hop on over to East Nanjing Road to buy another watch and learn the real meaning of “People Mountain People Sea” (while you can). After this, you’ll be tired and hungry, which means you’ll need to find a diner or bistro or any other authentic Laowainese restaurant (while you can). After dinner, you can have a nice, relaxing walk through YuYuan Garden (while you can), and don’t mind all the thousands of other people— they’re here to relax too. When you finish there is when the real fun begins. Head back to the Bund to wind down with a few cocktails and those big bright buildings, and maybe a local xiaojie or two (while you can). Enjoy your time, and don’t blink or you might miss something.
