Contrasts of China's development

Browsing Shanghaiist this morning over my usual congee and green tea breakfast. Here's what I found.

China's nouveau uber-riche will soon be able to jet off to tropical Hainan island, where they can basque in uber-luxury at China's first 7-star hotel (which is about 4 stars more than I've ever known).

While they are lounging around having money fights, other not-so-lucky or politically connected Chinese people get the pleasure of toiling in the world's most polluted town: Linfen, Sha'anxi province. This six-part webumentary really lets you feel the grit of Chinese development.
