Emperor's Summer Palace
The Dragon Lady (mother of infant emperor) stayed here most of he summer.
Pedestrians do not have right of way.
Neither do cars. It is every man for himself.
Mantra for drivers: "Good honk. Good brake. Good luck"
Lane divisions are optional and mostly ignored. Driving thru the middle of one is preferred.
Bricks and mortar are everywhere. There are small piles along sidewalks, in front of homes, in parks. Everything is made of bricks (sidewalks, homes, walls)and there seems to be a constant need for repair.
Speaking of sidewalks, they are wide and have a section going down the middle that is an entirely a different pattern and color. It is for the blind. I was impressed.
Diapers are not in use for toddlers. Their pants are slit open from front to back and their little bottoms exposed. Cute but whoa? And we thought that Canadian geese made a mess of the streets!
