In Beijing you can easily find a very simple way of living (old style), just in the center, not far from Tienanmen Square and the Forbidden City there are hutongs (alleys or narrow streets)that run along siheyuans (traditional houses)
To take a rickshaw and drove through them is a real pleasure as you enjoy a quick glimpse at houses,birds , pigeons, people ( very old ones)in a word, daily life that is disappearing to left place to "modern live"
As there are lots of rickshaws and all dressed in the same way, the plate with his number is something you must to remember!

Funny to still see such ricksaw driver, most of the rickshaw are attach to a motorcycle in stead of paddling kind. I hope he doesn't have to take anyone too far, it can be exhausting. Maybe this is only in the touristing places for tourist to have a few munites of fun. Perhaps I will see some when in China Next month.

A nice daily life shot showing the man at his work.. it seems he is a bit old for such a job but perhaps he has got used to it or there is no other choice.. good vertical framing n color harmony.. very well captured.. tfs
Best regards, Atousa

Un excelente retrato de este conductor de rickshaw, es una buena imagen de la vida cotidiana y dura para estas personas, pero aqui me parece estan mejor preparados que los de India.

This picture stands out in your China gallery, because this man bears such a strange resemblance to the old Chinese leader Jiang Zemin. Don't know if you're aware of that. Just google some images and see for yourself.
