It seems that many cities have construction boom right now - Dubai , Calgary , Beirut ,Tel Aviv , Shanghai , Beijing and throughout China ...

Then I fell asleep in her arms.
That was happiness then.

Wonderful, Moscow is beginning to catch up and is poised to become a hub of economic activity very soon.

The new buildings going up are very unique and my favorite one is now the Federation tower

The amount of projects for Moscow at this time is outstanding!
