Beijing Hutongs

Hutongs, Beijing.

Forgive the short posts, but I’ve been running The Circus by myself and feel a bit run down. And now, I have a sweet little asthmatic to add to the mix. The internet is slow and since I will be getting up every four hours to administer albuterol, it’s another brief post. The Hubs particularly wanted to visit the Hutongs. Unfortunately, we were short on time and managed only to walk through a few alleyways. Next time, we’ll rent bicycles and do more exploring.

For some funny reason, this photograph made me think of Alice in Wonderland:
“Alice opened the door and found that it led into a small passage, not much larger than a rat-hole: she knelt down and looked along the passage into the loveliest garden you ever saw.”

-Lewis Carroll

I suppose that’s a hint that there will be more photos of the Hutongs forthcoming.

  1. Hopefully you can find a good doctor for the kiddos. I know how you feel with asthma. There have been times when the controller was doing nothing. Your post makes me grateful that I have several good care facilities to take my kids to.

    I am loving all the unique doors. They are amazing.

    • Black mold is rampant in China. The dampness from high humidity makes it a perfect breeding ground. Most of the buildings (including ours) has mold. :( One of the kids has been coughing for four weeks straight now and it’s difficult to know if it’s the mold, allergies or a cold. Maybe all three combined.
