Simply superb, Wink. Thank you for such a wonderful photo essay - I feel like I've been for a virtual visit. Aren't the uniforms in the silk factory so beautiful?

I want the XXXXL xiao long bao!! How awesome is that?! It's so cute that it comes in its own little bamboo steamer.

I remember getting that straw dumpling at Nan Xiang when we visited Shanghai so many years ago! Good to know it's still there. Your posts make me miss the place. So want to go back now!
