Was in Shanghai for some of last week so taking a break from the Week in Tokyo series while we look at what I got up to in the Peoples Republic of China.
Those who have been to Shanghai Hongqiao airport before will know that the only way to get into the city is by taxi or bus. Most people use the taxi but waiting times can be 30 - 45 mins. The thing to do is to take any bus that gets you out of the airport - then get off after five minutes and you will see taxis everywhere.
Not sure if this is worst than the fish sperm that we saw the other day - these are live prawns which are soaked in vinegar which gets them "drunk" and motionless. Folks then eat them while they are alive.
