Pan Chengfu, a 35-year-old migrant worker from Anhui province who moved to Shanghai with her wife 8 years ago, expressed his strong desire to live in the city instead of returning to the countryside farm. He and his family have been staying in a rented single room on Yeshi Rd, an poor area where most migrant workers resembles. Selling fried rice and egg pies on his food cart and hiding from city inspectors are his typically days and nights. Still, he is fascinated by the lifestyle in the city. To him and his family, Shanghai is part of their future.
