our little corner of the city

The other day I walked around my neighborhood and walked down streets that I hadn't walked down for ages. Empty houses with broken fences standing next to full houses with everything perfectly intact. It's odd here in China... when someone buys a house they basically get to design the entire inside of the house... And one day all of a sudden (or after months of incredibly loud drilling and hammering) there's a "new" house on your street.

I'm glad this is the only house I've ever known here in Suzhou. It feels so much like home.

Those aren't bars on the windows... I was standing behind a gate :)
