This morning (Sunday, October 22), I went on a three-hour tour of an old "hutong" (alley-way) part of Beijing. It was quite touristy but nice, nevertheless. These are what the homes look like Most have running water and electricty these days, but not always private bathrooms. The residents mostly rent from the government but in some districts you can buy them. And I read that rich people sometimes do this and fix them up, particularly as they're very well-located in central Beijing. As you've probably read, a lot of the; have been torn down to make room for high-rise buildings. But our guide told us there were still more than 2 million living in places like these.
