  • Our stay in Beijing visiting the street listed as "walking the famous antique street Liu Chang". Got here autumn evenings where street artists and merchants began to razbredat′sâ. Carefully write out their creations on sheets laid out right on the pavement, leaving only the most persistent and vetroustojčivye (or needing). Out of idle curiosity (not on shopping, and on "zyring") have entered into several shops-secondhand book, art and calligraphy and quasi-antique. So I wanted to buy something immediately and for any money, not anything hooked, but unpleasant draught walking down the street artists are not left.
