as the subject says:

so. looking out my hotel window. 7am. this is the 2nd time ONLY i have seen the sun. the smog here is pretty bad.

4pm. on a bridge. somewhere. i like that you can only just see the giant chimneys that are constantly beltching out smoke.

these motorbikes are everywhere. they are basically a suzuki gsx 125cc. however they are multibranded. this one is called 'radar' pretty cool.

this is the 3rd best truck i have spotted. i haven't managed to catch the 1st one in a good pic yet. never fear theo. there'll be a pic of me driving one sooner or later. (and before you ask, the 2nd was covered in people AND pigs)

the final set come from the hotglass factory and i clicked 'submit' to quickly on my previous post.hrmph.

sui and jane

i hung over these guys shoulders, and eventually they let me have a go. our hair was blowing lots 'coz of the fans. it was EXTREMELY noisy in the factory.

hooray. me being a hero

this is one of the 100kg pots that fit into the furnace. they are arranged in a big circle and the fiire comes up the middle. old school, still the best.

finally, glass in it's powdered form. this folks is what all those products in bunnings look like before you buy them...

AND THEN, we popped into the place next door. they ran a coal fired metal smelting plant. so medjeeval it hurt.

it's been done, and he got laureled for it ;)

BUT i knew how it worked and was able to explain it. there was an electric blower, rather than 2 guys on bellows tho :( bit dissapointing. but labour saving ;)
