I lived in Shanghai from 2006-2013. Whenever I could, I threw on a backpack and wandered around China. Incredibly diverse in people and landscape, this enormous country is full of endlessly fascinating stories. I touch upon caterpillar fungus, monks, official Chinese minorities, countryside kitchens, blurring private/public spaces and whatever caught my eye. These are my 7 years in snapshots. I loved every moment of it.
