Shanghai 02 - Tian Zi Fang & Hu Tongs

My Favorite Things about Shanghai 2015:

1. Tian Zi Fang

- a network of alley ways full of cool shops, bars, and fantastic snack foods

- highlights: macaroon ice cream sandwiches from C&C Unicorn, finding a unicorn skull at Enigma (heck yes they do exist!), & the teeny tiny leather book shop.

2. The Alley of All Thing Cute & Fuzzy

- a little girls ultimate dream

- Everywhere you turn in this area, they sell: kittens, puppies, tiny turtles, crickets, bunnies, mice, gerbils, rats, hamsters, chinchillas, fish, and squirrels...yes, squirrels, but I'm not sure if I'd highly recommend one as a pet...as they were scurrying about inside their cages as if jacked up on mountain dew and an endless supply of pixie sticks...

 Did I mention squirrels?

3. Bar Hopping

- Bar Rules: look for a red telephone booth and enter through the right wall ;)

- Magpie: they make their own liquor by soaking the alcohol with various fruits
