Cities at night from space

filed under: @ 20:38:23

To an observer in space, humanity's footprints on the surface of the Earth are large and varied. They include the regular patterns of irrigated cropland, straight lines of roads and railways running across continents, reservoirs on river systems, and the cement rectangles of ports and seawalls along coastlines. But what about humanity's signature footprint - cities? By day, cities viewed from space can blend into the countryside, or appear as gray smudges, depending on the style of development and size of the urban area.

Cities or Countries

On the BBC: are cities the new countries?

Greater Shanghai has a population that has passed 20 million. The sprawl of Mexico City is estimated to house another 20 million. And Mumbai too. These cities are bigger than many industrialised nations. And they are growing at a dizzying rate, sucking in workers from rural areas.

Just got back from Shanghai.

The temperature was between 0 and -4 degrees Centigrades..

It was a very short and hard trip, I hope next time I will have more time. I posted a picture of the Pudong skyline in the sidebar and more pics will be in the photos archive (not yet).

I'm too tired to write a long post, check out the Wikitravel entry for more info on Shanghai.

I just got back from a trip to Hong Kong and China. I liked and enjoyed all of it very much. It's also been productive since it was a business trip mostly. I will post some pics and more about it later, now I need to rest..
