Hongkou Stadium, Shanghai, China

A nice large card arrived from China as a part of "Your hometown" Round Robin, from Feiyi. She writes, "This is a card of Hongkou football stadium, and I just live in the building behind the stadium. Near it is a park called Luxun Park. The famous Chinese writer Lu-xun's grave lies in it. This area used to be controlled by Japanese, so a lot of Japanese style buildings can be found." Very wonderful to receive such a card and have a little story behind it! I am reading "The Shanghai Girls" by Lisa See right now, so it is amazing to see what modern Shanghai looks like! The book is amazing, too!
