China lost to France and England during the second opium war, and so the French and British took over some major ports in China. They took this tiny island (its .5 miles long, my dad and i walked around it in an hour or so, but we dawldled and took pictures like tourists) called Shamian Island and took it as their home away from home. The architecture is prominatly french, i felt like i was in New Orleans. Its a very delightful, small island. I didnt even feel like i was in China, and scrolling through the pictures it doesnt look like China does it?
C'est francais! yep, a french cafe.
