Stay in Beijing

This photo shows the place I stay in Beijing. I am with my parents. They have a two bedroom apartment (on the left of the photo). The total area is about 700 square feet, but it costs 936,000 yuan or $123,000. I see shocking contrasts everywhere, just like the fast development in the background of the image and rundown living conditions of average citizens.

My father is getting better. He is able to walk around a little. Since I posted my father’s portrait on my blog, I have received so many friends’ emails. I am really touched. With my limited English, I can’t say enough to thank you. I would like express my deep appreciation from the bottom of my heart.
