Not the Beijing of the Olympics

Now that Flickr is finally unblocked in China, I've posted a bunch of photos I took on a walk with my friend Marco (visiting from Shanghai en route to Italy) from our hotel to the Dandelion School. Every day the students and I take the bus to school because the walk is long, the weather is hot and the sidewalk-less road is dusty. People were curious but friendly as I walked around like a tourist with my camera. The walk is not what I would call pleasant, but it was a fascinating tour through a predominantly migrant neighborhood. This is where the people that build Beijing's skyscrapers and sweep its streets live.

I love the one of the two guys on bikes! Then again, I like pictures with bikes in them generally. You take such great pictures - keep them coming!
