Did you know that Hongkongs high skyscrapers were built by men walking on Bamboo sticks? I was surprised to see many new skyscrapers with bamboo sticks attached together just like the Europeans use metal while building their skyscrapers.I did touch some of these bamboo sticks to see if they were stable and i was amazed,they did not shake abit.They were tightly tied with a sisal like material and infact i think by hand.Here are some photos that i took,tembea uwone mengi.
