M.I.A., Off the Grid
Sorry I’ve been M.I.A. lately, but I just went to Korea and I’ve also been traveling quite a bit to get to and from work… This may not look like the boonies, but it’s over 30 km outside of the city and only my Bose noise canceling headphones and some Diplo (no, seriously) can make it even remotely fun to go all the way out there.
There aren’t many interesting things out there in terms of sartorial culture, but a lot of tech companies are based in the area and have managed to slightly settle the wild wild southwest of Shanghai… But cars and people alike don’t pay attention to the recent addition of red lights and lines on the roads. It’s a sort of free for all, so you are safer in a group for sure… It’s like organized chaos down there, which come to think of it aptly describes much of Shanghai.
Anyway, I’ll try and blog more regularly and apologies for my mini hiatuses!
