Dan Washburn over at Shanghai Diaries has posted an article he wrote for that's Shanghai magazine about the city's efforts to make itself greener. But as he points out, greener doesn't always mean better in the People's Republic.
Grass is to be looked at and not laid upon. This is a very different mindset than the one found in the West, where places like New York’s Central Park or London’s Hyde Park don’t hide their imperfections. In fact, people appreciate them.
The pictures included in the article are quite nice, and a reminder that Prague isn't the only city in the world with a high pollen count right now.
