    That looks like a Calatrava bridge. Didn't he design one of those on a continent somewhere?

    That bridge is a rendering I believe of a bridge already under construction in . . . HONG KONG. A friend of mine working there has told me about it. It's supposed to be the world's longest cable-stayed bridge once completed. It looks impressive. The large number of cargo ships, the topography, and vegetation pointed away from Europe. My second guess would have been somewhere in Japan followed by Singapore.

    It looks like a Bridge in St. Petersburg Florida.

    Recife, Brazil?
    SOME say the world will end in fire, Some say in ice.
    From what I’ve tasted of desire
    I hold with those who favor fire.
    But if it had to perish twice, I think I know enough of hate
    To know that for destruction ice
    Is also great
    And would suffice.

    Robert Frost (1874–1963) (From Harper’s Magazine, December 1920.)
