A Visit to NYC Shanghai

My friend Non who teaches at NYC Shanghai told me an organic fresh market event at their school.  I have never heard NYC in Shanghai – or any U.S. university in China.

After an hour metro ride I spotted an office building – without the name tag it could have been any company’s office.  The fresh market is right behind the gigantic glass building.

Friday afternoon means no one stays in school, leaving café empty.

  1. Hello, or ni hao!
    I’ve been following your blog for a little while as I was searching for a site in Beijing and your blog came up.
    I don’t know of any other US universities in China, but I do know of one from the UK. The University of Nottingham in Ningbo is just about 4 hours south of Shanghai by bus, via the Hangzhou Bridge. My son studied there! 😉

  2. I hope your son likes the university! Somehow this post was not showing up in my email box and I’ve only spotted it right now. I have already sent you another email through private email and if you have any question, let me know. I’m doing an update on this website and hopefully it will do a better job relaying the posts.
