A Venice of the East

Before I get to the photos, last night at the Shanghai Brewery we saw Gilbert Arenas with some of his teammates.  I went up to him and reminded him how he dunked on me in High School, of which he had no recollection (he probably dunked on 1,000 people in high school).  He was really nice and took the time to talk with us for a few minutes.  He has always been one of my favorite basketball players and seeing him randomly in Shanghai last night (He is currently playing for the Pro team here) was really cool.

Tomorrow I will be leaving this booming Shanghai metropolis for new adventures.  I am first heading to Hangzhou for a couple of days, then continuing on south.  Hopefully I will have enough time to swing by Hong Kong and Macau before entering Vietnam in early February.  Stay tuned and continue to check back!

Yesterday afternoon I set off for the historic water town of Zhujiaiao for some exploration.  I accidentally boarded the slow bus, so instead of the trip taking an hour, I was crammed inside like a sardine for two and a half hours.

When I finally arrived in Zhujiajiao it was around 2:30 PM.  There weren’t many tourists around so I had free reign of the town.  Lighting was a bit overcast, but it made for a nice, soft background.  The local food was fantastic, people were friendly, and I got some awesome shots.  You can do the entire historic part of the water town in about an hour and a half, but I took almost three.   Enjoy!  I would love to hear from you in the comments below!

    The water looks cleaner than in the Venice of Italy. Nice shots, it seems not too many tourists venture into the town.

    Fascinating set – nothing like I would have expected. In fact those first two images could almost be of Amsterdam
