Shanghai in a Box – Part 7

[Shanghai has just come out of one the gray, rainy abysses that often descend upon it. Now the sky is shining with a new resilience, bringing new light to its citizenry. Full of this radiance, many are prompted to do something out of the ordinary. Ferret sits outside a coffee shop and goes through his wallet. He finds the card that he’d been given so long ago.]


Cai Xin


Logistics Manager


Floor 7, Building 23, 1285 Huaihai Middle Road

[There is no other information on the card. It’s been a while, but Ferret figures he might as well try and get his reward. He could use the cash. Plus, it’s stopped raining and he’s optimistic, ready for an adventure. A quick search on google maps reveals that 1285 is near the Changshu Lu Metro Station. It looks like a long residential lane. The name on the card is rather strange.]


Cài  Xīn

[It’s pronounced the same way as the word 菜心, a type of vegetable. Who would have such a name? Ferret decides it’s time to find out.]

False Starts #70

It occurs to me that a proper education should fundamentally do two things: 1) help you figure out the life you want to live and 2) give you the knowledge you need to live that life.

I’m not really sure any institution can do all of this, or if there is any one that really wants to.
