Thanks!

It is an obelisk, not very tall, kind of 50 meters, I guess. It is not far from the Russian consulate by the way.

I'm amazed that you were even able to count at all. I wasn't able to see the opposite shore of the Yangtze from one shore on an average day, for the lower reaches of the river (I think from Zhengjiang down stream). You must have some amazing eagle eye-sight.

I don't see much progress since last summer. Are they really building it? The speed of construction is not Chinese at all.
