*Yoko is in China for 10 days! And with no access to Facebook or Instagram, she is sending us photos the old school way — via postcards. We’ll be featuring these snapshots from Yoko in Chengdu and Shanghai all week here on the blog. Enjoy! – Kayoko

After a long trek from Chengdu (taxi, plane, train, taxi), I finally arrived in Shanghai.

There was a reward at the end of the long journey -- a noodle and pork liver set at a hole in the wall joint near our hotel. After some slurps, it became apparent that you eat the noodles in very light broth alongside bites of the liver and green peppers draped in a thick, sweet, savory sauce.

This cost 12 yuan, just under $2.
