Growing up with a last name like mine, you hear a lot of puns. One of the more common ones was “where there is a will, there is a way.” In China, one of my favorite expressions is, “there is a way” or 有办法。(Add vigorous fist pump.) Everywhere you look, people are showing this is truly the case. Mountains of recyclables on a little cart so high you can’t see the driver. Families of 6 on a moped. Homemade submarines…the list goes on! People here are resourceful because they must be and I find that inspirational. People often laugh when I tell them stories from here because they say I am turning native but to me, having a friend tie down a few ladders on my back so I can transport them safely home on my bicycle is just fitting in and paying homage to this crazy place. #china #thereisaway #中国 #有办法 #selfie #自拍

I pass the crossing guard on the corner of Shaanxi Road and Huaihai Road almost every day. He consistently gives very angry yet passionate directions to unsuspecting and lost pedestrians. I respect his dedication to the job. #shanghai #onthestreet #淮海中路 #陕西路 #街头巷尾

An this was the second thing I saw when I walked out my front door this morning. He was taking a mid morning nap and blasting some pretty great Beijing Opera on a radio. #shanghai #feiyue #上海 #京剧
