Saving China's Past

Saving China's Past - Good article from the Wall Street Journal about how China is starting to preserve some of it's history. Chinese history goes back 5000 years.Transportation in Beijing with the new subways will reduce the need for new roads. Tourism is driving some of the calls for preservation.

Something that have not reconciled with yet that is a cultural issue. Chinese and Taiwanese love to buy new houses. My wife would much rather live in a new house, than a 100 year old house. The house I grew up in was built in 1917 and the city where I grew up in, Monrovia, has an old house tour every Mother's Day. This just shows the difference in culture.
