it's 1.5 floors per week and the speed will go up to 2 floors per week, but it still needs more than 100 weeks until 30 Dec 2008 comes.

Note I am not following this formula

went to the site today

it's getting busier every week

today i've been rolled over by approx 40 concrete trucks
they were coming from everywhere

i tried to climb that sand hill, but they have removed a part, it's now very steep and i sank into a mix of sand, dust, concrete, rocks and garbage
i was lucky i could get out of it, i was sunk till my knees and almost damaged my camera

weather was shit too, 31 degrees and hazy, dusty smoggy sky = white and bright

result is not good, but at least we can see the progress
