Railway across the Roof of the World

The Guardian has undergone a facelift, it has redesigned its fonts, offers colour on every page and shrunk from broadsheet to Berliner. It's much more civilised size for a commuter and for the briefcase. smile

Yesterday, they published an article about the railway accross the roof of the world. Its been built in China from the Qunghai Plateau to Tibet and will link the towns of Golmud & Lhasa, making it the highest railway in the world. The article is very good, it seems to start as a travelogue, but discusses the development, enviromental and strategic politics of China's emergence as a world class technological power.

I suggest you may like to read the article.

No6782: TheGuardian Didnt there used to be a newspaper called the Guardian? There still is. Look under that copy of the FT, theres a pile of them. What, this? Thats the chap. Nice and blue, isnt it. Cripes. Are the printers all on diets? No, that svelte shape is quite the thing on the Continent. And it wont get caught up in your cardigan when youre reading on the bus. Oh, small is beautiful and what-not? Precisely. But the Guardian couldnt just follow the crowd, its got a reputation for fearless iconoclasm to uphold. Hmm. Does it have any stories in? Come on, even Guardian readers can only take so much in one go. Hey, wheres that funny bit with the questions and answers? The Times. Do say: Ich bin ein Berliner. Dont say: Didnt I read that in the Mail yesterday?
