The bathrooms are community. During my walks in the hutongs could see as a dog was left on the outside of the bathroom door and snarled to all those who wanted to enter, until the owner came out.

Hutongs are ancient, It is built in ancient Chinese dynasties, but unfortunately due to the Olympic Games of 2008 many of them destroyed. Still some authentic hutong you can visit, but they are disappearing rapidly and with them a way of life. Some of the hutong existing are tourism-oriented, thus losing part of his essence of neighborhood.

Its streets have great activity and neighbors have much contact between them. They are very funny streets to visit and get lost in them, relatively easy because the majority of hutongs, the most modern, they are built without any plan, upsets happen in every corner. You can see all the images to full screen in the section of Photographs.
