Shanghai Old City I

This is the city of Qibao, the ancient city before Shanghai.  It has been here over 1,000 years and was an original center for silk and other goods.  It's now a mix of Chinese tourist shopping, a nice temple or two, and small exhibits of old-time living.

The river runs through it

Lots of good bridge scenes

Lots of good food in this area - these log-like things on the left contain chicken backed inside

It was a rainy, grey-day, in a somewhat grey area, but the color of this shop stood out


Yummy dumplings - they actually have meat and soup inside

Interesting rice objects - gooey rice covering sweet insides

Chinese whiskey

Cooking tofu
