I'm a 20-year-old business school french student. After one year studying in Lyon, I had to find a six-month internship, and it had to be abroad. I found one in Shanghai. So I will work and live with chinese people for 6 months.

It's food: Buns

It's food: Buns

I eat buns very often, and I always forget to take pictures in order to make an article about them. Usually I think about it right after taking my first bite and I’m always like, “oh never mind I’ll do it next time”. But this time I resisted my hunger for you dear readers (ok just for one minute but still…). So, buns, or Mantous, are typi
It's an excursion: Beijing

It's an excursion: Beijing

About two weeks ago I went for a four-day trip to Beijing. Indeed, I didn’t want everyone to tell me “What? You’ve been to China and you haven’t seen the Great Wall?”. So I booked a hotel, I grabbed my Lonely Planet China and my friend and five hours of train later, there I was. Before I went, everyone told me that if Shanghai was the bes

It's an excursion: Hangzhou

I went to Hangzhou for one day because of my job, but I made time for a little bit of sight seeing. Here is the video of it!

It's Shanghai Jewish refugees center

During World War 2, a lot of Jews escaped Europe and some of them went to China, and more precisely to Shanghai. Actually I didn’t know about that but it was approximately 30 000 Jews that were fostered in Shanghai at that time. I went to visit the main synagogue of those Jews, which has now become a museum full of testimonies of the Jewish expat
It's the Golden Week: Yangshuo

It's the Golden Week: Yangshuo

The Golden week is the name Chinese people give to one of their three weeks of national holidays. It occurs the first week of November in order to celebrate the National Day and the Moon festival. During this week, the entire China is on vacation. Yes, you got it right, 1.4 billion people on vacation…at the same time. So I let you imagine how com
It's Jing'an temple

It's Jing'an temple

Last week I visited Jing’an temple, which is in my neighborhood. Jing’an literally means “peace and tranquility”. I couldn’t agree more. Even though it is a fairly touristic place, you can still see Chinese people praying inside the temple. They give money as offerings and they light incense. Jing’an temple was built in 247 BC and is ac
It's a place: Hongkou

It's a place: Hongkou

Hongkou area is situated at the north of Suzhou River. I had the chance to visit two places there: Duolun Lu (Duolun Road) and Hongkou Park. Both were very charming and made me feel like I had travelled time. First of all, let’s talk about Duolun Lu. This street looks like a movie decorum, with typical Chinese antique shops and buildings, maybe e
It's a chinese wedding

It's a chinese wedding

Last Saturday I got invited to a Chinese wedding, thanks to my roommate. Of course, I accomplished my blog duty by taking pictures and investigating Chinese traditions. First of all, let me describe you how it went. So, for starters, the host that animates the wedding makes some kind of very long speech (in Chinese of course!) and then there is a v

It's what I see: China-vs-Japan, the Senkaku Island

Let me introduce you to a new section of my blog: It's what I see. I actually realized I wanted to have a more spontaneous section where I could post articles that I find interseting, pics taken in the street, music heard somewhere, or really just anything that I feel like sharing with you Let's start off with a small resume on a geopolitical that'
