I live in the shadows of those tall buildings in the distance. The one with the hole at the top is the Shanghai World Financial Center, and at precisely this moment, it is the tallest building in China. The building with the cranes at the top will very shortly eclipse it and win the tallest title.
I love to live where I can scan the horizon and see a neighborhood landmark from nearly anywhere in Shanghai. It's a good feeling, even when I have to spend forty minutes in a taxi, crawling my way home through rush hour traffic like this evening.
