Yesterday over coffee, a friend and I talked about how vast the houhai reclamation project actually is. She mentioned that her daughters love to drive on roads in the reclaimed area because their GPS (global positioning system) locates them in the ocean, rather than on land. Apparently, the system misreads their location because the maps that the system is accessing do not represent the new landscape. It’s true. Plans really can’t keep up with change (计划跟不上变化).
