Day 242: Hair!

A wig vendor displays colorful wares at the AP Market in Shanghai.

The AP Market in Shanghai is a “fake” market where vendors offer Louis Vuitton handbags, Omega watches, Oakley sunglasses, Beats headphones, Converse sneakers, NFL & MLB jerseys, Adobe and Microsoft software and other luxury items, all of them fake, some of them good counterfeits and some really, really cheap knock-offs. As you wander through the maze-like underground complex it is easy to become disoriented, the aisles of shops curving and slashing diagonally and the stores all sell the same stuff, one bag store looks like every other bag store, one t-shirt shop looks just like the other dozen t-shirt shops. But this is the only wig vendor in the entire complex. I’ve never seen anyone buying anything here and I haven’t seen many people with purple, or yellow or blue hair walking around Shanghai, but I know where to come if I ever need some fake hair.
