China 2006 - Beijing Hou Hai

Hou Hai is an area of Beijing along a small lake that has lots of bars and is popular with Chinese and tourists alike.

Couches in front of bars, where you can hang out for a drink and gaze at the water

Outdoor Pool - not something you see every day

Bar strip at night




Boat going under the bridge in time-lapse

Mom & daughter selling flowers

Bike taxi man that took us about a half-mile for less than $1

Men playing games on the sidewalk

Even in China you see cars with, um, interesting attachments
