... it in one of those arcade machines with the claw, so now I know it's possible. The smog shrouded buildings even 100 feet away. All the colors of the square were dulled by it. This square is the largest square in the world, and can fit up to a million people. Most of the buildings are government owned and operated, the most prominent of which was built in 8 months to celebrate a 50th anniversary of ...

I actually took some pictures of the seniors; they were so engulfed in their games, it was great. Kind of reminded me of bear creek and the punjabi seniors.
