Destruction time again

The process of systematically destroying Shanghai's old neighbourhoods to make space for high-rise apartments continues. The good news is that the local government finally realizes that some of the best-preserved longtangs (traditional stone house neighbourhoods within a wall) should escape that fate. And most likely that will include the shikumen house in which we have our apartment.
