「我離港前到過一間精神科醫院。當時有位病人禮貌地問,一個以作為世上最悠久民主政體而自傲的國家,如何能夠將此地交給一個政治制度非常不同的國家,且既沒諮詢當地公民,又沒給予他們民主的前景,好讓他們捍衞自己的將來。一個隨行同事說,奇怪,香港提出最理智問題的人,竟在精神科醫院。」彭定康 金融時報

“During a visit to a mental hospital before I left Hong Kong, a patient politely asked me how a country that prided itself on being the oldest democracy in the world had come to be handing over his city to another country with a very different system of government, without either consulting the citizens or giving them the prospect of democracy to safeguard their future. Strange, said one of my aides, that the man with the sanest question in Hong Kong is in a mental hospital.”Chris Patten Financial Times

Arizona Grand Canyon Skywalk

Arizona Grand Canyon Skywalk


Dr. Buzz Aldrin has already taken the
Inaugural Walk on the Skywalk Glass Bridge, but the Official Public Opening Of The Skywalk is scheduled on March 28, 2007




Grand Canyon West, a destination owned and operated by the Hualapai Tribe at the Grand Canyon’s western rim, announces March 28, 2007 as the official public opening date of The Skywalk. The Skywalk will be the first-ever cantilever shaped glass walkway to suspend more than 4,000 feet above the canyon’s floor and extend 70 feet from the canyon’s rim.


Access to The Skywalk will run from dawn to dusk and will cost $25 per person in addition to the cost of a Grand Canyon West entrance package. One hundred and twenty people will be allowed on the bridge at a time. Admittance is first come, first serve for walk up visitors; however, reservations can be made. Guests will enter and exit the walkway via temporary buildings while the adjacent visitor’s center is being completed. Grand Canyon West plans to issue numbered shoe covers – in order to avoid scratches and slipping - to each visitor that enters the open-air walkway. Prior to the public opening in March, Grand Canyon West will host a “First Walk” event for media and VIPs. The name of the first public figure to step on The Skywalk will be announced closer to the opening. The historical rollout of The Skywalk structure, with the glass in place, is scheduled for February 27 to March 2. The initial part of the rollout process involves jacking the structure up off of the supports and then subjecting the structure to several days of thorough tests that replicate the conditions of final placement. After the final testing is complete, the multi-million pound steel enforced structure will be rolled out across the canyon’s edge, which takes multiple days. Immediately after the structure is in position, it will be seated and attached to the foundation. Located at Grand Canyon West’s Eagle Point, The Skywalk facility will also include a 6,000 square-foot visitor’s center on three levels – underground, first story and second story – which will contain a museum, movie theater, VIP lounge, gift shop, and several restaurants and bars, including a high-end restaurant called The Skywalk Café that will offer outdoor patio and rooftop seating on the edge of the canyon. The second story will be where visitors can access The Skywalk glass walkway. The visitor’s center will also offer private indoor and outdoor facilities for meetings, special events and weddings. 風信子小姐 07-03-29 提供的最新 大峽谷 Skywalk 的片段 Further Information please refer to : 大峽谷SkyWalk 天空之橋, Grand Canyon SkyWalk Aerial Bridge Related blogs: Eagle Point at Grand Canyon West , 韶華去 四季暗中追隨

巴黎艾菲爾鐵塔 Eiffel Tower 曾幾何時也是受人非議﹐現在是巴黎的地標﹐巴黎狄士尼樂園也是。

不過今次很可能打不響算盤﹐投資者是中國人﹐種族成見﹐捱不過非常時期﹐轉手比鬼佬可能就豎。

風信子小姐:

謝謝你﹐看完了片段。

提供的最新大峽谷skywalk 的片段﹐開頭的部份見到車路還是 unpaved 的﹐我懷疑Skywalk 的地址﹐是否就是我上次離開主路﹐去看的 Grand Canyon 秘景﹐都是在印第安人保留區內﹐但路已經比我那次較好得多。
