Quiet Hutong

One of my favorite Things in the Jing is to walk around the many (but quickly disappearing) hutongs.  Hutongs are the traditional courtyard homes of the Chinese.  This photo was taken in the alley ways of one of them located near where I live.  The Chinese writing on the walls indicate that soon this will be another one to fall under the wrecking ball and likely to make way for high density, high rise apartments.

Come see these beautiful and interesting places before they are all gone.
