Noted and found all the photos interesting. One thing.....all those big new buildings in China and no one is living there, when there so many living in shanties, Seems a shame.
Thank You Carrie.

Photos of abandoned places always look like one day everything was normal and full of life, and then everyone left for the day and never came back. There's cups on desks, a music book on the piano, etc.
