Le cabanon is a little weekend maison in the South of France. Rustique and with the barely neccesary things to spend les jours de conges (days off) enjoying le soleil (sun), le potager (allotment) and le jardin (garden) while playing petanque and drinking Pastis.

At the beginning it was a humble shack for the working class but nowadays altought it keeps its rustique, bucolic and Pagnolesque spirit it has become the dream of any french. In some extent it has also become an almost impossible one to achieve since there aren´t many cabanons available nowadays, the buying price has rocketed to the skies and most of them are inherited and keept within families from generation to generation.

Browsing through my old pictures files I stumbled upon  these photos I did last year when we were visiting Shanghai and the World Expo.
I remember that particular day was a sad drizzly, breezy and overcast one but that didn’t stop me to hop on what I have always considered the best transportation way between Pudong and Puxi (the two sides that conform the city of Shanghai and that are divided by the famous Huang Pu River); the ferry. It cost barely nothing (around 3 kuais) and for the short 5 minutes it takes to transport you from the dark side (Pudong) to the brighter one (Puxi) you also get the incredible opportunity to mingle with the local community.
