It's been a week!

There is construction pretty much wherever we have been in the city. A lot of the older apartment buildings that must be 20 – 30 years old, dating back to the early 80's after reforms were put in place with the death of Mao, are being refurbished or pulled down and old Hutongs being cleared, and the massive subway network expanded.

South Station is massive and rivals our new OR Thambo airport in JHB. We were ...
