Just read this from a China website, and want to share this with you guys and gals.

World #1 tallest arch bridge Lupu Bridge opened for transport today in Shanghai. And Yao Ming was there to be guest of honor and led 1,000 people running 800 meters across portion of the bridge in celebration.

This bridge built entirely of steel is 8.7 Kilometer long, costed US$ 310M and has taken 3 years to build connecting the Pudong area and Puxi area. Its 550-meter arch beat the current world record holder of another 518-meter arch bridge in the West Virginia State of USA.

Here are some pictures I dowloaded from Sina.com of Yao Ming running across the bridge in celebration.

YOU THOUGHT YOU'VE SEEN IT ALL ?????

With strong support from Jiang Zemin who rose from Shanghai, there had been such tremendous changes in Shanghai in the past decade that it has grown very fast into one of the most prosperous international cosmopolitan cities of the world. Lot of big infrastructure and skyscrappers that had transformed the complete skyline of Shanghai.

HERE ARE JUST A FEW OF THE MAGNIFICIENT SIGHTS OF SHANGHAI:-

Yao is looking good. But he needs to change his hairstyle. That bridge and those buildings look really nice. I wonder if they were built by Chinese engineers and architects.

Those buildings are really beautiful. Funny how the Chinese sense of flow and form comes out even when you're dealing with a skyscraper! If Yao gets to see city lights like THAT every night, wonder what he thinks of poor old Houston. :oops:
