A Slice of England...

Can't get to England any time soon? How about Shanghai?

The city of Shanghai is building nine new towns, each inspired by a town someplace else. Thames Town looks just like some places here - cobbled streets, Tudor houses, pubs, even a church (which creates an interesting socio-religious-political conundrum, when you think about it).

But to be really authentic, you'd need an M&S Mostly Food, a PoundLand and six or seven fried chicken places.

Oh, plus some stumbling drunks on the weekends.

Here's the link from NPR.
