Still looking for confirmation on that.
Yesterday i put an image here about a information of the At.moshpere restaurant. I edited because the image (was this below) says only the name and the floor... probably should be a restaurant

Mentougou is near Beijing indeed crskyline:

Watch in HD on Youtube!
Dude, this would be great as a moving background for windows 7. If you can make a perfect loop.

For next week, the weather forecast is for rain, more rain and then some more. I guess lightning storms are to be expected too, so you guys living in the or near Downtown better keep your cameras ready.
