I'd prefer a skyscraper jungle for workable days and a landscape such as the one in Anna Maria's post for weekends

And it was the Japanese government of years ago. Granted, we shouldn't forget our history and try to learn from it but we shouldn't hold that against nations now.

And it's also nice to see that they're building the roof/crown on Jasper Tower.

Damn, are those kids swimming in the Huangpu!? That will do serious damage to their health...

Grygry,
If you're referring to the IFC complex - it won't be seen in the above photo when finished. It's located to the right, behind Bank of Shanghai and Bank of China buildings.

I have no intention to start an off-topic fighting and ruin this thread. I just think it's a better idea to keep a distance from a thread if you don't enjoy its subject, that's good for everyone, no? Considering the posts and comments you made in other threads before (the rural countryside in China is better and more enjoyable than the cities, blah, blah, blah), German lady, I really don't think we should take it seriously when you attempt to talk like a "smart-ass" knowing everything.

Ja, the water is probably a carcinogen, just that nobody has bothered to expend rats proving it.

that picture is an award picure in China because it reflects some part of the life of the ignored group, the construction workers who come from the rural areas. A sheer contrast between skyscrapers and some rural kids.

Looking fine! My favorite project in China. It's pretty much the sexiest ever. Few towers in the world will be as cool as the SWFC.
