I spent approximately 25 % of my time in Shanghai so far this year. I made friends - gathered a crazy little Shanghai Family of my own. Discovered the city. Nooks and corners. Laughed, cried, ran from the smell of peanuts and got thrown out from taxis in the middle of nowhere (totally standard btw). Learned about China business culture and fell in and out of love with the city daily for about a thousand times.
In time I will compile a Shanghai guide for you guys.
It´s a pretty cool place.
