Shanghai - Commerce I
Lots of things are for sale in Shanghai - perhaps too many things. Lots of commerce, lots of shops and stores, lots of people selling watches, trinkets, and more.
First, the required neon shot - actually the only neon street in Shanghai
Other views of the same street
Something you don't see every day - Americans buying tiger furs on the street - they were haggling for quite some time, drawing a crowd of both sellers and onlookers.
This boy was a young hawker, in Nanjing Dong Lu grabbing passers-by to buy something (I forget what).
A giant coke bottle
A rather large electronics mart on Beijing Lu, many floors of tiny cubes selling LEDs, switches, and transformers - much larger and more organized than Tokyo's famous Akiharbara.
Another girl selling hot rolling sneakers (in the blue bags)
You never know when you'll need a pump or valve, so there are scores of stores like this on Beijing Lu - like a huge Home Depot turned inside out
More of these little cubby holes. I shot this from quite a distance, so it's not clear what they are selling.
More shops - maybe power tools on the left and saw blades on the right
One of several nice shopping malls, but this is my only picture - they wouldn't let me take pictures in the nicest malls, where cameras are not allowed, probably to combat counterfeiters.
