I've been on the Lake Pontchartrain Causeway in Louisiana and it was real long.

China rocks, doesn't it? Sure they're 'a little bit dodge' still, but their ingenuity and growth is giving the rest of the world a right economic kick in the goolies.

Now, not happy with being the home of seven of the world's 10 largest bridges, they've added the planet's largest sea bridge to their motoring repertoire.

like the rest of their "rush" to technology / advancement, rush to be a world beater, i remain skeptical of the strength of their infrastructure - overall attention to quality (latest issues being methodology of testing crash safety in auto production of export models (25 tests vs global average of 25), lack of purity-testing in supply chain hence out of the boxes pc's with bad/malware loaded software.

having lived in n.asia since 1996 & been there- seen it 1st hand overall quality generally sucks & is way far behind s.korea 15 yrs ago.
unless they put the spirit of law & commitment to quality into place they will remain 3rd world class producers (but walmart loves their product...)

just a personal opinion - not willing to partake in debate

A shame it wasn't open yet when I visited Qingdao last year so at least I would have seen it.
