Pyongyang has more skyscrapers than Washington, D.C. does. I guess that means Pyongyang is more developed?

For the size and importance of London, the skyline is small. Just comapre it with New York or chicago.

To me a skyscraber a sort of like a neon billboard... It's beautiful and does a great job of getting attention, but it's what's behind the billboard that really count's if you look at it finacially....

Blah blah blah. What skyscraper? What development? If a skyscraper has a substantial impact to the economy and conversely, if a healthy economy propels the building of skyscrapers, then of course there is development. The physicality of a skyscraper ALONE does not translate to development. It is not infrastructure. If a country overbuilds skyscrapers and half of it is unoccupied, the economy is obviously sick. So there.

Tirana certanly isn't a developed city yet, that's why I don't really regread being moved from there, however Athens was never in my field of sight, neither to move (absolutely not), nor to visit.
