Visiting one of the hutong areas, working bikes everywhere.
(David left me his groovy mt. bike, but if I go down, there’s no one else here for the kids. It kills me not to ride…though outside the hutong, Beijing isn’t a biking city anymore. Cars, cars, cars – & lots of motorized scooters.)
They carried old TVs…
This photomural of Tiananmen is in a museum gift shop.
Here’s another kind of transportation…a spring week-end, Ethan drives a (slow) battery-powered boat on Houhai Lake, beside the hutong. Putting a child behind the wheel elicited frowns from other boating parents!
