Shanghai Dreams

National Geographic recently featured an article about Shanghai, titled Shanghai Dreams, along with an interesting photo gallery. I always get very excited about these kinda article about Shanghai, a city that I am deeply rooted. Shanghai has been a dream for me for all my life, it has never left me even though I have lived far away from it in the past decade. Although most western media can only focus on the fascinating appearance of Shanghai, it is really her profound subculture that's uniquely attractive to me.

Below is a video of Chinese New Year's Eve in Shanghai just a few days ago, it is as crazy as I remembered last year. Apparently, the city managed to throw up 1000 tons of fireworks that night.
