-The Dream of The Giant (8/10)-
A room for guards at a new residential building.
Lanzhou in Gansu province is one of the many construction project strongholds stretching out into China's west. It was in 2012 when construction works in Lanzhou New Area began, and bulldozers started roaring and making hills in the desert level with the ground. Most of the locals who had lived in the brick houses of the small villages, moved to the newly constructed modern residences nearby. Yet, some people still remain in their old houses. As part of the “Go West” initiative, China envisions the prosperity of its East also for everyone living in the West. The New Lanzhou Area is one of many cities emerging from the ground from scratch. Its 150,000 residents plus 40,000 construction workers, who temporarily call this city their home, are the first ones in a city that was not there before, a city whose birthday is exactly known. What a lady at the front desk of my accommodation said to me, stuck in my mind: "Our country is moving forward by using bulldozers".
