Tokyo: City Whoa

I find it absolutely mind blowing when I see man made structures. A backpack takes about 10 hours minimum to complete, and that’s just fabric, thread, some trims and some hardware. Now a building, even the simplest house, has so many different components and so many quantities of said components. But I could somewhat quantify building a house. Something like a skyscraper, I can’t quantify. I realize that there are a team of people and when you have teams with managers and some time, a lot of amazing things are possible. So maybe it’s somewhat quantifiable. But a city, with so many buildings, roads, bridges, trains, underground tunnels, pipes, wires, etc etc, even knowing that it took many many teams, and an insane amount of man hours and resources, I can’t quantify. Looking at a city to me is just as impactful as seeing a mountain that took millions of years of plates moving a few centimeters per year to form. Crikey…
