Taking a stroll towards The Bund at sunrise in Shanghai, you can see, smell, and hear the beginning of the day for many locals. Shopkeepers prepare their goods. Food vendors prepare their food. Residents wash their laundry. A carefully choreographed display of life repeated all day, every day. To get a good grasp on the way of life in Shanghai, just take a stroll. Every facet of life is carried out on its endless maze of streets & alleys.
