Beijing Postcards: Day 4

Shuaifuyuan Hutong

We went down this hutong for an excellent dinner of Peking duck. We walked back along a street divided by a narrow park along its length. Old couples sipped their tea at little stone seats; people walked their small dogs and exchanged greetings while the dogs did too; couples walked hand in hand, cherishing the snatched privacy not possible in crowded living quarters, especially for unmarried couples.
