Just like the Los Angeles area where I live, it is one of the more populated cities in the world, Shanghai is crowded. On weekends every place of amusement will have hordes of people. We came to this little village on a weekend, the only day we had left. While there are numerous little villages along the numerous creeks in and around Shanghai, this one is easier to get to. One can access it by the metro, Shnaghai has a very extensive and efficient metro system which is very clean. The toilets are super clean. One can really enjoy Shanghai. It is thoroughly modern. Upon arrival, we see the shops doing a brisk business selling pastries. The Chinese does not scrimp on eating. Food is very important.
