These photos were taken from our hotel room window.
Remember I told you about the cranes in China?
(One-third of all the cranes in the world
are being used in China.)
Even when I see a crane here in Arizona, I can't help
but think about all of the cranes in China.
See the tall building on the left (above)?
It is the Shanghai Tower and the second tallest building in the world.
The one on the right is the Shanghai World Financial Center,
also among the tallest buildings in the world.
The picture below is a good depiction of
the housing situation in Shanghai and Beijing.
Remember Beijing has 19 million people,
Shanghai has 24 million - 24 million in one city! Whew!
It reminded me - just a bit - of the homes shown in
the movie Divergent.
