There are inevitable bouts of homesickness for anyone away from home. But in most cases, Matthew John Haynes can find a remedy here in Shanghai.

The Briton has lived in Pudong for about seven years as a teacher at Dulwich College.

Like many of his colleagues, he settled in the international community of Biyun, close to the school campus. But a short commute isn’t the only reason he chose Pudong to settle.

“I love Pudong,” he said. “It’s a bit quieter, which is good for me because I’m from the countryside. I’m in the biggest city in the world and still a short distance from some nice quiet places.”

If Biyun is the quiet side of Pudong, then Lujiazui represents the opposite: dotted with skyscrapers, crowded with visitors. Haynes loves it, though.

“It’s a great mix, lots of opportunities for everyone,” he said, noting that there are lots of different ways of understanding the world in Pudong and Shanghai.

“I really like the open spaces in Pudong. I like Century Park and the places where you can have outdoor recreation. It’s also very exciting for families. You can visit an art museum, a museum science and technology and an aquarium,” he added. .

On September 30Haynes saw the exhibition “The Dynamic Eye: Op and Kinetic Art from the Tate Collection” at the Museum of Art Pudong (MAP).

This is the first time he has visited the MAP and it is an impressive experience. It seems to provide a new option to cure his homesickness.

“I’m British. Today is the first day of the Tate gallery exhibition. You see! Even the floor we’re standing on is from the Tate exhibition,” he said, tapping softly. foot. “So it’s very exciting. It’s really good for me personally.”
