Shanghai for kids (1): Lilongs

Our children grow up in this lovely expat bubble of Shanghai, somewhere between international school and compound. But where are we really and what is so typical about living in Shanghai ? How was it in earlier times and how do people outside our compounds live ?

A walk throug the Chinese lilong style compounds will give your kids a glimpse of a complete diofferent life which is happening just around the corner of their homes. They will get to know the Chinese life style in many details and understand how a life can also be outside of a compound.
