Pics & commentary by xiahoudun, april 9th, posted on SSP.

We had some bad weather in Shanghai the past weekend. Rain, smog, thunderstorm, but yesterday was a nice day to go out to Pudong and up the Oriental Pearl. The pics were taken 09-04-08. On the close-up you can see the progress of the past fe weeks. They completed the exterior of the upper skydeck. The remains of the former left crane are gone. The right crane seems to have a subcrane attached, though.
