Mein Hutong
 (11 min)
The Hutongs in Beijing contain a special atmosphere for me. As an overseas Chinese who has never lived in China, I nevertheless found a way to identify with these places. After the experience of wandering around them as a foreigner, I imagine some myths coming alive in the Hutongs. Even though buildings and artifacts disappear in the face of modernity, myths remain and preserve our collective memory.
