The Bund by Dan Chung and a Plethora of Silly Animal Hats
The Guardian’s Dan Chung, who it appears to be spending some time in China, has posted another of his rather lyrical and relaxing videos on the Grauniad’s website (I noted his excellent film on Shanghai's Longchang housing estate the other day). This time he’s just filmed people on The Bund enjoying themselves and highlighting the penchant for silly animal hats that is all the rage this Chinese New Year. He also has some nice shots of the Bund and down onto the Jinmao Building and Pudong presumably taken from atop the new IFC skyscraper – better known as the “Bottle Opener” for obvious reasons (left).
