Ford Mondeo........

I was also wondering, are these Fords? ..........YES

I'm from Mexico, they are also produced in Mexico for the Mexican car market, they look sporty, very similar to the Lexus is300.
Mondeos are very powerful and smooth, in my trip to China I saw a few of them, there are more in Mexico than in China.

That's very impressive, most people have only seen Shanghai's and Hong Kong's skylines while they don't realize that there are other cities and towns that have booming skylines and booming economies, Well Done!

china is really killing its culture with these random skyscrapers, u would never guess they were in china if u didnt see the odd bit of chinese writing about, all the classic chinese architechture is being thrown down the drain, what happened to all the buildings with the dodgy roofs, all being replaces with endlessly drab scrapers.

Your points are very one-sided if I may say. New buildings are not necessarily built upon the ruins of good old architectures. Highrises are built to make sure that people can afford homes, only the rich ones can decide which style they would prefer. Building scrapers wouldn't kill China's culture.
Your words stereotype very well with a lot of people from the west or in particular those from the UK, who tend to preserve every old building they have in the name of preserving culture.
