Images grabbed from day-to-day life in China’s capital
How about a nice trip to the Great Wall? This video was going around Chinese social media a year or two ago. I believe it was during the Spring Festival, the country’s biggest holiday season. I had to feel sad for the people. China is stingy about work leave (for its own people, that is — I get a generous month of paid leave every year). So most of these people were probably regular working class and middle class folks who finally got a chance to see the site their country is most famously known for, but this is how they had to experience it. It was a great proportion of the population’s only significant break of the year.
