Rickshaw Ride and Hutong Area

It was freezing, but we had a great Rickshaw ride through the Hutong Area. I had been dying to get down the little alleyways that we were passing in Beijing and this was our perfect opportunity. We even were invited into a home to see how the locals live. It was an amazing and eye-opening experience.

I really like this action shot above. This is Eric and Brooke Nash - River's dad and sister. We are having a really great time with the Nash family and everyone in our group.

A husband and his wife live in this home. Typically, the adult children and families will live there also, but this couple's children wanted to live in a more modern area. There is no bathroom in this house and the neighbors all share a common bathroom, which the Minnie Mr. deemed it necessary to visit. Although the bathroom was modern with squatties, the smell was overwealming.
