A Walk Through the HuTongs

Today was the first day of the National Holiday Week here in China. It recognized the founding of the People's Republic of China in 1949. My friends and I had the day off so we decided to walk through the traditional HuTong (courtyard homes) of Beijing.  Love seeing the life in the older neighborhoods.
