A day in Wuxi: Dan Korman
While in China I have noticed that they do a wonderful job of trimming bushes and planting flowers along the sides of many roads. In Beijing, Tianjin, and Wuxi I have noticed that they do a much better job than any city I have seen in the states. I wonder why this is. It sure does help make their cities look more attractive. I wonder why US cities do not take the same measures to make their cities more attractive.
I have also noticed a great number of buildings being built here in China. I was aware of the rapid growth going on here, but needed to witness it in person to get a true perspective. The types of expansion I have witnessed here is mindboggling to say the least. You never see this type of growth in America. This is just a major difference you see between developed and developing countries. However, most of the cities we have been in have been fairly developed and still have buildings going up in every which direction. It is truly amazing to witness such growth. I do see some of the construction projects appear to be shut down or no longer in operation, but there is still a great abundance of new construction considering the economic state of the rest of the world.
