One of my friends suggested me to compare cities in both America and China on my blog instead of always villages and mountains, he said he wanted something cool and fashionable ! Unfortunately, I am an old-fashioned young man. I know nothing about big cities except I was born in a big city, Urumqi, China. After thinking, I decide to share what big cities in both America and China look like through my eyes without any comparison and comments. Hopefully, you can find some fashion elements or interesting points from this entry.
What does big city look like?
In my mind, big cities are all made of reinforced concrete wherever they are in America or China. Do you believe big cities also have emotions?
In the day time, they are all gray and ponderous.
They are also dirty. Toxic gas is suffusing in the air.
It is easy to get lost when I am walking on the street because every street looks the same. Compared with the tall buildings on both sides of street, I am too small to see sky.
Only when the sun sets, the city starts to get warm and vivid.
At night, the whole city wakes up! It is the show time! The most exciting moment of a day. No matter you are in
New York, America:
or Shanghai China:
