Hutong Buildings under Renovation

Even after the Olympics there is quite some construction going on. In some areas they are not tearing down the old traditional Hutong buildings but rather renovating them. I really like that. I hope Beijing will keep all of the current Hutong districts. I think this is the true Beijing. Not all the glass and metal high rises. These traditional houses are more beautiful.
