Hutong Culture(1)

@Jiumen Hutong
I was thrilled that this fly focused his attention on that little bee, not my lense.

I toured lots of Hutongs in Beijing, and here are some pictures with their interesting stories. These plants' photos were taken at the gates of several Hutong households.

They even plant pepper oustside their house!

I just bought my train ticket home, 15 hours on railway would be a very tiring work, so I'll schedual the posts and then have some good sleep!
