Diamond Update

I should stop calling it The Monstrosity.  It is supposed to be a diamond.  The facade will shine brightly on the skyline, that’s for sure.

They have been working through the winter to make sure this building is ready for the China National Games about 150 days from now.  Liaoning Province won the honor to host these games and the city has been preparing for years.  It is one of the reasons why we have seen so much construction during our time here.  This particular bit of construction is a daily sight for us.  Tiny ant people walk along the huge, circular beams.  Welders welding all hours of the day and night.  Cranes moving round and round, up and down.  Fascinating.

I started this blog in 2010 as we prepared to move to Shenyang China. Since coming back to the US in 2015, my writing has been less consistent. Trying to find a voice here...
