    In my last video we explored my new neighbourhood in old Shanghai:

    In this video I explore my old neighbourhood in new Shanghai. This was where I spent the last 8 years. As you can see, a sharp contrast with the first video, this part of town is very cosmopolitan, and just a wonderful place to live, right in the heart of Shanghai. Probably not the kind of scenes you'd expect from China.

    #6 Yes it tears me up that cities around the world are becoming quite generic in appearance. Starbucks, with 2,200 locations in China and growing at 500 new locations a year, is replacing the traditional tea houses. MacD's, Burger King's, KFCs and Dairy Queen's are everywhere. Starbucks in Disneyland Shanghai is their most profitable store in the World. I wouldn't mind so much if Cinnabon and Carl's Jr came to China, but they are not doing well with their stores in the rest of Asia. Asians just find Cinnabons too sweet and Carl's Jr burgers too big I guess. Kind of why I needed to make a move to old Shanghai, but even here I have all these stores 5 minutes away....

    You were spot on, I felt like I was looking at a European city, not China. Beautiful architecture, but have to say I think I enjoyed the simplicity of your new neighborhood. But isn't it great you can spend time in both the old and new China?

    #1 Well I do live in a nation deprived of coffee for centuries, and this last decade there has been a coffee explosion! I remember coming to China to work in 2008, and the Chairman of our joint venture, my counterpart, gave me a welcome gift. It was a jar of instant coffee. I went to my secretary and went "Huh?" and she explained that instant coffee was a premium good and it was a prestigious gift. No longer. Now it's Nespresso capsule gift boxes!

    #4 Well if you ever get to Ireland again @Teresa Gezze you should add the ruby sessions to your list of things to see, it's well worth the £6 entrance fee to see 3 acts performing 3 songs each, and the best thing is that you never know who is going to perform on the night!

    I notice you are outside a record store @Teresa Gezze if you had been in Ireland on a Tuesday, you could have popped along to Doyles Pub in Dublin and taken in some live acoustic music, where people such as Ed sheeran and The Corrs have appeared live, the are called The Ruby Sessions and it's only a few pounds to gain entrance, well worth the money!

    I was immediately curious about what Claddagh was, which sent me to this link "The Legend of the Claddagh" https://www.irishindeed.com/legend-of-the-claddagh/ View more
    I was immediately curious about what Claddagh was, which sent me to this link "The Legend of the Claddagh" https://www.irishindeed.com/legend-of-the-claddagh/ Immediately I had another wow! The wow! was in learning about the the Claddagh Ring - where the Irish Jewelry Company said this "To wear a Claddagh ring on the right hand with the crown turned outwards, away from you indicates that the wearer is single. To wear a Claddagh ring on the right hand with the crown turned inward, towards you symbolizes that the wearer is being courted in a relationship." So now I am thinking, how does meaning that is associated with jewelry become a record store? There is not much said about the origins on the shops website, but it does point out to the founder of Claddagh Records, which turns out to be quite a distinguished character called Garech Browne - the wikipedia about him is rich in traditional Irish culture and he turns out to be a very wealthy patron of the Irish Arts, but his Wiki opens up whole new stories that by themselves are quite amazing. In this one photograph I learned more this morning than a well crafted buzz of text. It is not only travel that opens our eyes to the world, it is the personal affinity with one's own learning journey, and as I travel through beBee here, this is mine. Close
