pissing lovers should open also my album from Shenzhen, saw there just 2 kids (twins?) doing it on street (in China people let child piss anywhere, I saw not long time ago mother in pastry department in shopping mall let piss child into plastic bag in between pastry shelves), cannot give link because here at home my Picasa doesn't work thanks to censored internet in China

What are the creatures in the green cages?
They have many names in Chinese such as 聒聒、螽斯、螽斯儿、聒子、聒聒、山蝈蝈 etc., but the most common name is 蝈蝈 (Guoguo).

The english name is katydisds.

Thanks for the very interesting thread. Lots of pretty girls in Beijing.
I'll certainly have to visit Beijing over the next couple of years. So far I've been to 3 of China's top-4 cities but not Beijing which is a shame.

very nice photos, thanks! you know what? i prefer beijing's winter , because in winter the environment of the city is freash and cold, and the neatly dressed people on the street (depite some travelers from remote backward areas), all of these remind me the feeling in cold countries, which usually means weathy countries as well , like north american, so i guess beijing is more like newyork or london than some developing countries' capital.






but as a city which is supposed to be an advanced international metropolis, sometimes beijing looks a little awkward, as you can see the man behind the girl........
i guess it's the sultry weather of beijing's summer makes him improperly unveiled his body,

well the good news is i almost can tell he's not local, and giving the fact that more than 30% of the city's incedents graduated from university, which is highest in china, and even higher than many rich countrie, i think most beijingnese are perfect capacity to behave more civilized at least than this,

Beijing - from mobile (LQ) - full album with all photos taken with mobile phone, different dates, sorted chronologically, detailed captions in album, sorry for lower quality, later after winter I start to carry big camera outside and also go out more often, that's why lack of photos during winter (and also lack of people since Chinese also don't like winter and spend most of the time in shopping malls or at home)

it's quite common, that's why they are sold in seafood department in supermarkets alive or frozen, i tried it once in restaurant (price practically same as beef) and it's interesting combination of fish meat on normal bones, so supereasy to suck it down from those "chicken" bones, actually before i tried it also in cambodia but only legs were tasty at that time and i would swear it tasted exactly same as chicken, these in beijing in pot with vegetables tasted more like fish
