Scenes of China: Buildings in Xining, Qinghai

A week ago, I shared some scenes from the regions around Qinghai Lake in Northwest China. For a contrast, today I will share a few scenes including larger buildings in the capital of Qinghai province -- Xining. They are are all from Xining's urban districts and provide a taste of the development Xining has experienced, which is more than I had expected. Most of the buildings do not stand out in any way from buildings I have seen in many other cities in China. Even if urban development is not your thing, Xinghai is still special in that beautiful natural scenery is never too far away.
