Greetings from Beijing….wish you were here!
Photo taken in the Hutong section of Beijing China in November 2011.
I adored Beijing’s hutongs, or old alleyways. The hutongs represent the old China and the way the city used to be thousands of years ago. Hutgongs are a little bit hard to find which was half the pleasure of seeing them. We found this one hutong that was a little gem as it lead to restaurants, bars and shops. There were rows and rows of drivers waiting for a wandering tourist to give them a ride or tour of the hutongs. We never indulged in a ride but it was fun to watch them wheel by.
