Exploring the Hutongs

After a delayed flight from Vancouver which led to Clancy missing his connecting flight to Beijing and arriving with no luggage I am excited to say we have our boy here for the month.

We have spent the day exploring the hutongs, and by hutongs I mean the real deal, not the tourist version. When we were here 5 years ago there were hutongs everywhere but since then so many of them have been bulldozed and replaced by highrises. If you ever get a chance wander through the hutongs of Beijing and see how these people live, it will certainly make you feel lucky and maybe even a little spoilt.
