Part of the Beijing 2006 – The hutong series; see my same-named journal post for a bit of background.

See the location on a satellite map (Google’s street map doesn’t register with the satellite view!)

You only need a tiny bit of dirt to grow a cucumber plant or two, but for grapes you have to go the market – and take care you don’t drop them on the ground, like someone did here. The ‘pedicab’ advertises guided hutong tours but the photos on the front panel are rather faded… Best seen enlarged!

Camera: Fuji Finepix F30
