地下鉄の駅を出て まっすぐ静安寺方向へ歩く。伊勢丹に近づいたところで ふっと脇道を見れば、なんとも味わい深いれんが造りの老房子(ラオファンズ)が建ち並ぶオールドタウンがそこにありました。ファサードもベランダの柵も窓の格子も 洒落てること。ポッケに手を突っ込んでフラフラしている親父、緑のワンピがお似合いね!フライパンとおたまを手に歩く 恰幅のいいおばちゃん、わりと高そうな外車の窓ガラスを掃除する 長い黒髪ミニスカ女子。そろそろ日も落ちかけてきた頃、どこからかいい匂いがしてきた。今夜の夕飯 なんですか？
Nanging West Road has the shops of top-brand and Department stores lined up. I went straight down the road toward Jing'an Temple after leaving a subway station, and found an old part of town there were tasteful "Laofanzu" built of brick lined up when I looked suddenly at a side road near "Isetan" department store.
Thier facades, old style verandas and lattices were very attractive.
A man was strolling along with his hand in his pocket, a stout woman wearing a nice green dress was walking with a pan and a ladle in her hand, and a young woman who had long hair was washing a foreign car which looked expensive comparatively. The appetizing smell was beginning to fill the air the moment it was getting dark. "What are you having for dinner tonight?"
