Naya Lou  Beaches and cities , coffee and food πŸ‘™ places and objects befitting my mood πŸ’‹ or the photodiary of a life addict πŸ‘‘ Now: πŸ“China γŠ—πŸˆ―πŸˆš

So all over insta I see travelers taking fancy/sexy shots at the Great Wall and I'm here looking boxy AF with something that resembles a fence in the back πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ But who cares really !!! I walked the Wall girl πŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺ

"Above us our palace waits, the only one I've ever needed. Its walls are space, its floor is sky, its center everywhere. We rise; the shapes cluster around us in welcome, dissolving and forming again like fireflies in a summer evening"
Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni

Another one from the Summer Palace in Beijing, the most atmospheric place I've been in a while , with a real poem this time πŸ˜‰

The Marble Boat, also known as the Boat of Purity and Ease, is a lakeside pavilion on the grounds of the Summer Palace in Beijing. It makes me wanna write poetry ! "Oh summer palace , I like you very much , I wish I could stay longer but now I want brunch , don't worry summer palace the tourists are a bunch , I need to go now but we will stay in touch πŸ˜‰"

This might look like an odd choice for a first photo from Beijing.. But it totally represents the feeling I got while searching through the antique shops in Panjiayuan Market... the capital of China is somehow still more in touch with its past , more historic than bustling modern metropolis Shanghai. .I think I'm in love !β€πŸ’™πŸ’šπŸ’›

Look how excited I look that I can't afford anything but Starbucks in China's premier shopping street, 3.4-mile-long Nanjing Road πŸ˜€ It starts at the Bund in the east and ends in the west at the junction of Jing'an Temple and Yan'an West Street I was told it is a must-see metropolitan destination attracting thousands of fashion-seeking shoppers from all over the world so I came , I wandered , I left πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Jingβ€˜an Temple is one of the most famous temples in Shanghai. And again what I love here is this amazing juxtaposition of serene Budhist sites with bustling metropolis skyscrapers 😍😍 This is what China is all about, the harmonius coexistence of different eras and mindsets deferent people' and ways...have you ever travelled to such a place ? Looking forward to reading your comments!

Nope this is not a European City scene ! This is the Bund a mile-long stretch of waterfront promenade along the Huangpu River. To the west of this stretch stand 52 buildings of various architectural styles like Gothic, baroque, and neoclassical a living museum of the colonial history of the 1800's. You haven't been to Shanghai if you haven’t seen the Bund!

When it's winter in a smogy city and you've gained 5kg from all the fried stuff you eat but still pose like you're in the Caribbean in a Brazilian bikini πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

If you ever find yourself in Shanghai on a Sunday..leave and go to Qibao! Located in the center of Minhang District only 18 kilometers from the downtown area, Qibao Old Town by the Puhui River is a cool escape from urban Shanghai with traditional Chinese architecture and a number of attractions, including museums, temples and crazy good street food πŸ˜‰

Buddhist monasticism is one of the earliest surviving forms of organized monasticism in the history of religion as well as one of the most fundamental institutions of Buddhism. Since I could never ever ever follow their path (I was born a hedonist πŸ˜‰) I'm in awe of them and their lives of devotion. Plus their garments are amazing !

I absolutely love Asian temples 😍😍 they are so beautiful and colorful and cheerful and they make me wanna dance! Thing is I know no chinese dances so I just improvised I little with my very limited repertoire of Indonesian dances ahahahaah BTW if you ever find yourself in Athens and feel like an Indonesian dance class is what your heart craves (yes hearts crave weird things and they shouldn't be judged) this gal @tamamladenovic is who you would wanna talk to πŸ˜‰

Anyone who has spent time in China is familiar with stone lions 😊 Fun fact is that these babies first came over here from Persia presented as gifts to the Han court by Persian diplomats. By the 6th century they had become popular as guardian figures since in Buddhism the lion is seen as the protector of the spiritual teaching, or 'dharma'...or so I've been told πŸ˜‚
