There are inevitable bouts of homesickness for anyone who is away from home. But in most cases, Matthew John Haynes can find a cure here Shanghai.
The Briton has lived in Pudong for about seven years as a lecturer at Dulwich College.
Like many of his colleagues, he settled in the international community of Biyun, close to the school campus. But the short commute is not the only reason he chose Pudong as his home.
“I like Pudong,” he said. “It’s a bit quieter, which is good for me because I come from the countryside. I get to be in the biggest city in the world and still a short distance to some quiet and pleasant places.”
If Biyun is the quiet side of Pudong, then Lujiazui is the exact opposite: dotted with tall buildings, crowded with visitors. Haynes likes it, though.
“It’s a big mix, a lot of opportunities for everyone,” he said, noting that there are many different ways of understanding the world in Pudong and Shanghai.
“I really like the open spaces in Pudong. I like Century Park and places where you can relax outdoors. It’s also very exciting for families. You can visit an art museum, a science and technology museum and an aquarium,” he added.
On September 30Haynes viewed the exhibition The Dynamic Eye: Operative and Kinetic Art from the Tate Collection at the Pudong Art Museum ( MAP ).
First time visiting MAP and it’s an impressive experience. It seems to provide a new opportunity to cure his homesickness.
“I’m British. Today is the first day of the Tate exhibition. Look! Even the floor we’re standing on is from the Tate exhibition,” he said, tapping his feet lightly. “So it’s very exciting. For me personally, it’s very pleasant.”
