You grew!

Earlier this year, I noticed a particularly blue-sky day in Beijing. It is seasonal, Beijing's winters are either terribly foggy or in the color of "Olympic blue."

The smokestake grew by probably 10 to 15 meters and acquired some cosmetics. I am not sure it is connected to the Olympics, but was not pleased to learn the construction was not to take it down. <script language="JavaScript"> TagStart() Technorati("China") Technorati("Beijing") TagEnd() </script>

Most beautiful city in China?

Recently, Beijing was voted the most beautiful city in China. Yes, this one that I live in. Many greeted this news with disbelief. Quickly, many more beautiful cities surfaced in their minds.

"Factors including the preservation of historical monuments, forest coverage, air quality, the transportation network, city life, public space and GDP were also considered," China Daily said, with no hint of irony.

"Yet another propaganda news," everyone sighs. <script language="JavaScript"> TagStart() Technorati("China") Technorati("Beijing") TagEnd() </script>
