WHAT'S UP Dalian


 oh, plastics 

After the typhoon, a lot of plastics in fujiazhuang

Typhoon Lekima's gone, but a lot of plastics stay. 

Plastics! Plastics! 

We need more people to raise up the plastics issue and spread to as many people as possible, especially local we Chinese people who can actually change things over time.

Also hope the trash classification system to be applied in Dalian soon, as in Shanghai.

Here I just put a video clip about the plastics in fujiazhuang(付家庄) area.

Dalian Jinzhouwan International Airport - China's first airport built on an artificial island

Maybe some of you already know - Dalian is going to have a new, bigger airport in Jinzhouwan(金州湾). I like the zhoushuizi (周水子) airport very much because it is very close to almost everywhere. 

But very happy to hear the airport is likely in operation in 2020, you know what — the airport is on the sea and is the first airport built on an artificial island in china, and largest in the world so far.
