Old Shanghai

The FoodLover was walking along Nanjing Road Pedestrian Street 南京路步行街 looking for good place for dinner and found a crowd gathering in front of Wing On Department Store 永安百貨. There was a gentleman playing saxophone on the balcony while couples, mostly elderly, were dancing to the tunes of oldies. The party became increasing lively as more and more passers-by stopped to join the fun.

In case you are in Shanghai and don’t know where to kill an hour or so before dinner, this is the place. The music does stop at 6pm.

What does this have to do with “FOOD”? Of course, didn’t I say that I saw this before DINNER?

    Why is the title “Old Shanghai” while the Nanjing Road Pedestrian Street has only been around since 2000? Old people dance to Old music.

    Comparing to pictures I took in Macau, people in Shanghai seemed to be more cheerful.

    More precisely, people at Nanjing Road Pedestrian Street in Shanghai seemed to be more cheerful than those at Senado Square in Macau.
