Solo fact of the day

There was a local regulation in this city saying that no building is allowed to be higher than the Palace. That palace, by the way, is not tall at all. And it was part of past history. The new mayor canceled the regulation and he had to face strong opposition from a group of people claiming themselves as "budayawan" (literally could mean culture experts or simply those who care about cultural heritage). What about plane flying up in the sky, then?

And now three apartments building are being constructed.

well, it's no more silly than the self-fulfilling prophecy of the cyclical chaos every 15-20 years.
there's even nothing cyclical about the pattern. what were those? '67 then '85 then '98?

can you find the pattern?

although i like the "O-Solo-Mio" Italian jewel in the middle of Solo...
