As the Olympics approaches, I always found more and more interesting things by regular Chinese. Here is another story. Some farmers in Shuangxi, Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province, made a bamboo Bird's Nest of the scale 1:20, which took them half a month and spent almost a thousand pieces of Mao zhu, the local bamboo.

Also, a friend of mine recommends a bar at Fuxing Park, downtown Shanghai, which has a kind of Water Cube façade, esp. at night.
