First, Wrap Your Horse in Tissue…..

Just when I thought I may have been getting complacent about living in Shanghai, along comes a horse on the back of a bicycle to snap me out of it.
Can you imagine the conversation at the horse shop?
‘I’ll take that large fake Tang dynasty terracotta horse thanks. But I don’t think I can manage it on the subway. Do you deliver?’
“Of course! I’ll have the guys wrap it in tissue and bring it across Shanghai on the back of a tricycle. That OK?”
“Yeah, great! Thanks!”
Note to self: In Shanghai, nothing is impossible.

    I bet there's two guys on another bike right behind them ready to hammer a hole in the wall in case it doesn't fit through the door!
