Beijing Dong Lu – part II

Lots of work is going on… only a couple weeks until the Expo starts!  My favorite photo here is of the worker scraping the Chinese character for “demolish” off of a huge glass window.  I’m not certain if this means the building isn’t going to be demolished (at least not while Expo is going on), or if the window will be reused so they need to remove the paint first.

Demolition

I always carry my camera around with me for moments like this – when something interesting is happening on the street!  This was about a month ago before Suzy and I did a tour.  Look at the purple and orange rooms in the torn-down house!

Crappy construction

The day Dan left for Australia, we agreed to meet for a burger and milkshake.  I figured he wouldn’t be done packing, so I headed to his place.  He thought we were meeting at Johnny Moo’s…  so I waited for a while until he came back to his apartment.  I amused myself by taking some photos.  The “quality” of jobs here is just amazing. They just slop the paint everywhere (like on the electric boxes and window sills) and just left a paint brush in a bucket of paint (now dried.)  My dad would have been very upset at me if I’d done that….
