Just touched down in Shanghai town

CHINA | Sat, 21 Jun 2014 | By chang_in_china | Views [93]

I feel Kanye West would definitely appreciate this place- people at the airport in leather pants (a lot of them, too!), the otp extravagance of the neighbours... Shanghai airport seems to operate on a basis of over-trustworthiness as I strolled under ... Read more >

I'm not loose, but my wheel is.

AUSTRALIA | Tue, 20 Dec 2011 | By homeless_harry | Views [662] | Comments [1]
