Former Veggie Market

This is not the world’s greatest photo, but it’s the only picture I have that shows the great hallway of produce outside our gates. Christina snapped it when we found the market, right after we arrived in Beijing, and I’ve been going there at least once a week since then. I have a fruit vendor and a veggie vendor here, who are friendly and don’t overcharge me.

I went there yesterday to restock, and found this instead.

Rumor has it that the Beijing subway will soon be making it’s way to Yihai Hua Yuan. It’ll be nice to be connected to the rest of the city, but I’ll have to find a new market.

More photos of the wreckage.

    They’re knocking it down to make room for — I’ve been told — a new subway stop.
