Photos via the Nanjing Grapevine. These photos were taken from the Ford Motor Company offices in the Sheraton Hotel, courtesy of Nanjing International Club member, Julie Baker. I’m to lazy to cart myself down there and take some shots for myself.
Apparently a gas line or another underground flammable was hit during Line Two Metro excavation on Hanzhong Li, causing a large explosion which destroyed that particular section of the metro, as well as the adjacent building. I was surprised to learn that one of my students apartment was destroyed during this fire. I was surprised at her ‘matter of fact’ tone when describing the loss of her apartment and possessions. For someone who had just suffered something like this (especially during Spring Festival!!) she appeared pretty up beat, even laughing slightly when referring to herself as a refugee.
