Young Chinese and a young African lady rock Shanghai at Christmas 2014! – Tola Adenle

January 6, 2015

Asia & Oceania

The young Nigerian lady who took some of these pictures and also appear in others has always fitted in wherever she was, and it therefore came as no surprise when I read in one of her emails how she’s made “loads of friends” even as I – like any African mom – was still wondering and worrying how she would handle Shanghai. Her mom and sister have already visited, and the following pictures seem her way of saying, “eat your hearts out, worriers” – though not to me for whom she would merely have announced her well-being with her usual hearty laughter: “see me, auntie, I’m doing great!”

A happy New Year to Yewande and all her friends out there in the land of who’s-Chairman-Mao!

And should there be any doubts that the Chinese may be ardent followers of the Confucius way of life but they’ll party with others’ celebrations of their beliefs, check this very Christmas-scene out even though our Lady-from-Nigeria-by-way-of-England may be a tad older than those we are used to seeing getting hugs from Santa Claus!
