Chen Songde, 93 years old, witnessed an amazing change happened to his old broken house. On the day of completion test, he shook the accepter's hands and said: "I cannot protect this old architecture built more than 200 years ago. Now it's repaired and I can live comfortably in it. I'm so happy that I would even laugh in my dream." The completion test of this old house represents the success of the first phase of the Saving Traditional House Initiative in Songyang County, which renewed 142 old houses.
Shenzhen (深圳) es una ciudad situada en una de las zonas eco- nómicas más desarrolladas de China, el delta del río de las Perlas (珠 江三角洲), y a pocos kilómetros de Hong Kong (香港). Disfruta cada año de un larguísimo verano que le pro- porciona un clima suave, abundantes horas de sol, copiosas precipitaciones y una temperatura media de 23 oC, condiciones que hacen de ella una ciu- dad idílica para vivir. En las últimas décadas, esta urbe ha evolucionado de la mano de los programas de Reforma y Apertura que estableció el gobierno chino. Desde que se convirtiera en la primera zona económica especial del país, en 1978, ha experimentado un desarrollo económico radical, con un paisaje urbano que cambia por días, y es en la actualidad la principal re- presentante de la prosperidad de las ciudades emergentes de China.

Early January this year, when my superior at work approached me and talked about a 10-month programme, I was deeply worried. Saying YES to my superior was not so easy for me. If I had been told to study either in Australia or New Zealand my YES would have been straight away as they are neighboring countries. So, it took me a full week to think about this 10-month “study trip”. At the very same day, when I informed my family about the decision taken by my superior they did not accept it. A week later, before I took off from Fiji, I heard so many negative comments from my friends and relatives regarding China. I then sat down in my room one night talking to myself saying “God let your will be done and not my will”.
