Culture Clash

There are decorations for Christmas popping up all over Shanghai. Predictably, they mostly seem to be around shopping centers and Western hotels and restaurants. This flashy blue one caught my eye the other day, both for its blueness and for its proximity to the Jing'an Buddhist Temple (the lions and building behind it.) Between the temple, tree, huge office and apartment buildings behind them, and large shopping center just out of the picture, this little corner illustrates some of what is so fascinating about this city.
