Xinhua hipster paradise: update
A while back I made a post highlighting why my Xinhua neigbourhood was the ultimate place for rock/indie hipsters to be. It coincided with my custom Google map of said area which you can check out via the sidebar.
Revisit the post here.
So, now we have a vital new addition. I was in conversation with someone about Kaixuan Lu. That road is basically below the path of the line 3 light rail system and used to be the route of the original Hangzhou to Shanghai railway in days gone by. It marks the western boundary of my area and is a bit of a non-event. Of course, Yuyintang is there but next to a station and park by a busy intersection. Anyway ...
It turns out that a large music shop just relocated there, one block south of YYT and just below the junction with Xinhua Road. So, today I decided to check it out. It's split level with guitars on the top deck and has a great selection of quality brands. It's all above board and you can use cards there too. In my excitement, I completely forgot to get the complete name and address of the store and the receipt shows only the accountancy firm name. Anyway, I have added it in to the custom map where you can see a marker showing the exact location.
I mentioned a receipt, right?
Joy of joys, I have upgraded to an even more metal guitar. It's so metal I should be referring to it as an axe now. Behold the new Jackson. It even has a reversed pointy headstock. I always wanted one of those. Swoon.
