A month and a half ago I went to see some good friends in Shanghai. I took no work, and ended up doing very little other than eating and talking, with occasional breaks for walking around (mainly from café to restaurant to café...) It was bliss. One thing that interested me about Shanghai was the ex-pat community there - it seems much more pronounced than here in Tokyo (although, what do I know, maybe I'm just not cool enough to be in it in Tokyo), with a number of coffee shops and restaurants capitalising on all the foreign custom. Over an almond croissant and a nice cup of coffee in one of these, (and then afterwards on the subway) I drew some of the following:
