After ramen, the Gang of Four (Chinese historical reference, haha) headed toward M50.

We took the subway from West Nanjing Road (南京西路) to Zhongshan Park (中山公园), and from there, we took Bus #13 to the West Tianmu Road - Hefeng Road bus stop (天目西路恒丰路). It took us awhile to find the bus stop...

From the West Tianmu Road - Hefeng Road stop, we walked an extra 20 minutes to reach the creative park.

The cool thing about M50 is that it has many galleries, and they are all free. Sadly, like many art galleries though, you cannot take photos.

I successfully captured a few though which you may see below.

One artist was working in his studio carving words about the Cultural Revolution (sensitive topic), but the words are only visible if you look at it from a certain angle. Another way of sidestepping Chinese censorship perhaps?

Another artist made dumplings out of porcelain with different designs. They were SO cute and I really wanted to buy one, but one dumpling about the size of the palm of my hand was 120RMB and I didn't bring a lot of cash with me.

Oh well, another time perhaps...
