Amazing. Imagine where we would be heading if we were going through our boom times with today’s technology!
Sadly much of the old architecture was lost during the atrocity of the Mao regime, particularly in the large cities where old structures were bulldozed to build the hideous communist (”we must all be equal”) concrete housing blocks. You have to look hard to find the small remaining historic areas in Shanghai. Ironically, most of that old communist residential housing is being torn down to build the new glass structures popping up all over Beijing, Shanghai and other major cities.
14: The freeways in Shanghai are unbelievable. Elevated 30 feet in the air. 6-8 lanes, gracefully sculpted. Really beautiful.
A 35 sq ft apartment? My bathroom is bigger than that.
Would have left work early, but had to see all the pictures. Thank you for posting!
