Marc goes to China

View from The Westin Shenzhen
Marc is spending a great deal of time in China these days. We never know it he is going to show up for lunch or not. He posted this picture with the tag "New York MR . . . ", which confused me because what is the Eiffel Tower doing in New York? Then I looked again and realized he's in China, so somebody built a replica of the Eiffel Tower there.

Hong Kong, Macau and nearby urban areasPlacemark indicates location of Window of the World theme park, which is where the replica tower Eiffel Tower is located.

Seems that a bunch of people have built replicas of the Eiffel Tower over the years. The one in Shenzhen, China, is just one of many.

Before I looked at the map details, I thought: "Oh. Houston."

Go figure.

Well, yeah. River heading SE toward a big bay, sounds like Houston to me.
