Changing Face, the Hutongs

Absolutely beautiful autumn day here in Beijing (I think they will be able to ‘do’ the Olympics) clear blue sky, crisp fresh air…. this is , of course due to the CPC – Chinese Peoples Congress – a five yearly meeting of thousands of delegates from all over China (many in traditional dress) – spectacular, powerful, impressive….

Spent yesterday wandering around the ‘Hutongs’ large white Chinese characters roughly painted on the walls…. demolish!

The Chinese are true ‘squatters’…. the paths between ruined houses have been swept, broken walls, bricked up, plastic sheets hang over smashed roofs… and the power has been rigged up again…. clean washing hangs to dry amid the rubble…

(Oh, and the people are angry…. pointing and shouting and asking me to take photos)
