G9 Travel Guide to Shanghai: Window Washers

May 19, 2011

Just a quick follow-up to the previous post. Ever wonder who actually cleans some of the tallest buildings in the world?

    I’ve seen the Pearl Tower many, many times but haven’t realized how massive it is until your pic. Very cool!

    I feel like I would hate that kind of job… so nerve wracking!

    These guys have more courage than me, that’s all I can say!
