Xujiahui, Shanghai

The area in which I work, live and spend most of my time in Shanghai is called Xujiahui (徐家汇). The translation for the name roughly “Xu’s House.” One of my co-workers, Lois, translated on her blog the first few chapters of a book written about the history of Shanghai people and Shanghai culture and it starts with the history of Xujiahui. It’s an interesting read to see the cross cultural heritage of this region of Shanghai.
