What makes a (Shanghai) home?

What makes a home or a community? The people, shared interests, the neighbourhood?

On a recent visit to Shanghai I wandered around an area being demolished to make way for new high-rise apartments. Buildings were left in various states of demolition, remnants of life still evident amongst graffiti, and even people still living in some areas.

An eerie beauty presided over the buildings left behind. Perhaps this was due to the infused memories of life, love and the dramas that they have seen.

    This was a place I had hoped that my ship stopped on my west pac cruse, but too many pressing moments in Korea and VietNam took precedence
