An American in Chengdu

Construction | September 13, 2009

When I visited China last year, I saw an astounding amount of construction. Chengdu magnifies the country-wide growth spurt with work on a new subway system and repair of buildings damaged in last May’s earthquake. It seems that half the buildings on campus are under construction, while Renmin Nanlu, which cuts the campus in half and is one of the city’s major arteries, is currently ripped up for subway installation.

    About me

    I've come to Sichuan in search of adventure, fluency in Chinese, and awesome vegetarian food. I have to concede that the baby pandas are very cute.
