La Seine area looking quite finished (from swan bridge). They’ve installed those cool wind turbine/solar lights. One’s already stopped… I give the rest 6 months tops.

Other than progress on the Riviera (separate posts) and La Seine sections of the island, the most action is on the north tip where land reclamation is in full swing.

Some more work on La Seine residential area and more land reclamation on the north end of the island.

Some more progress on La Seine. I just really like this lighthouse and will attempt to climb it at the first opportunity.

Some new pictures of the lighthouse area called “La Seine” on Diamond Island. The caption on the design couldn’t say it any better (to make you think you are in Paris) – “Feel like watching the opera with the spectacular seat in the theater, clear face of performer and great scene, we completely create and deliberate the elegant art into your place.” Who write’s these captions anyway? I have a few pointers regarding run-on sentences and comma splices, not to mention complete lack of meaning.

There is no area of Koh Pich that is not under construction. The whole island is developing at the same time! The most notable changes in the last couple months have been:
a) land reclamation – Koh Pich is growing! It is getting so big that it is expanding east within a stones throw of Chbar Ampov area across the Monivong Bridge and North that the ferry across the Mekong is starting to go around the north tip.
b) the construction site of the big tower is visible – not the 555m, 2nd in asia that we were hoping for but the Troya tower which is depicted on all the sinage
c) the most dramatic of all is the destruction of the Diamond Gate Bridge. I guess, the history of the trampling tradegy 1.5 years ago is too much to carry forward with Koh Pich’s new image.
