Historic Buildings Shanghai

Sometime ago I saw this cartoon in the Shanghai Daily and I was positively surprised. It was the first time I saw a cartoon that was slightly critical of the way China is handling it’s historic sites in it’s constant drive to build new, ugly real estate.

Sure, it’s in the Shanghai Daily, aimed at us crazy foreigners but still.

Historic Shanghai Buildings

I like history, I like old buildings and my hope for 2008 is that most of them will make it to 2009.

Happy New Year!
