Taken in mid-February somewhere around Changshou Road. Arrived in February in Shanghai, and one of the first things that stuck out was the fact that you can have everything delivered. Not only food, but baked goods, pharmacy, groceries, flowers…and the vast number of drivers required to make it happen. Not only navigating the roads but complex buildings with separate elevators for delivery and multiple entrances.
