two towers

nope, its not Minas Morgul and Othanc, although Beijing does resemble Mordor these few days being wrapped in a noxious cloud of fog/smog (optimists called this a fog, pessimists...). but the previously twin leaning towers of CCTV Building has been united into a twisted Siamese twin prezzel.
when work mysterious stopped for about one month in the middle of this year, Robina and I were wondering if the engineers had to stop to do some last minute calculations. Imagine, if the towers missed the joining by a few inches! It might be quite difficult to hoist a giant hammer up to knock the towers back...
