written/non-written things by me (from 2005-2008)

Many people still live in the demolished hutong. I am guessing that the area is a little more than a square mile. The equivalent scale of destruction would be half the campus of University of Arizona. Imagine an area of this size whose buildings have been blasted with the furntiure and material items still inside.

This is the heart of the site, where people that still live here can buy a little food without leaving the neighborhood. There are a few remaining eateries and baozi (steamed bread) spots in this center and a few homes that look as if they double as general stores.
