Beijing has changed completely from the time I left China. Ugly skyscrapers are ubiquitous. However, I am excited in searching traces of my old hometown. There are a few places have been preserved for tourists. These kind of narrow streets are called Hu-Tong. I lived in this kind of place until I went to high school (there were no “visa” signs, of course). It was a cool raining day. I feel so good to be home.
