It looks nice indeed. It does have a high Disney factor.

I'm so fascinated with the gray bricks used in China especially this area shown in these pictures.
I'm wondering if they used black clay or regular terracotta and then the bricks were baked in charcoal to acquire the grayish color.

My first visit to a Hutong. I think it is not traditional, and also strange that no people were at this area.

Open-air laundry. Environmental and effective.
