One of the things that I have a love/hate relationship with in Shanghai is just simply walking around.
It can be hazardous at times with scooters, bikes and even cars sharing the sidewalks.  It can be annoying too -- people here seem to weave back & forth as they walk (even when they're not texting).  And sometimes it can be incredibly gross as people spit, blow snot rockets and relieve themselves, all in a very small space.  BUT ... I still find myself in love with wandering around, exploring new places and seeing new things.  There is almost always something interesting to see on a Shanghai street. 

On Sunday we came past this man ... he's got a mobile puffed rice and popcorn making station using a very antiquated piece of equipment and a fire in a bucket.  I love seeing things like this!
