Cheers!

Wow! Thanks for the quick taste of what is to come. It looks like you had relatively little smog too. When I first saw that wavey building, it was a complete shock to me. Another gem is that lightning bolt shaped building -- I think it I first saw it in one of Xiaobao's (Anton's) sets.

Yet another is this smooth glassy building. I'm sure you have seen it.

I think Shanghai is the most booming, emerging hippest city of the world at the moment. Its growth is fuelled by its manufacturing prowess and China's growing international prestige. Furthermore, looking at current economic indices, China still have a lot to improve....and to build :P

And as if one Shanghai is not enough, China will soon will have more than 10 Shanghais in other cities such as Chongqing, Shenzhen, Suzhou etcetera. No other country can replicate such vigor and fervor.

Great. Ask your friend if it's possible to get up in that building in order to take some neat Renmin Sq. photos!

This is actually my favorite building in Shanghai, although SWFC will be a worthy competitor. Great picture!
