Todd from Cleverchimp continues his tale of going to China to get parts made for his company. Part 5 of his Beijing trip has a nice video of biking through a Hutong (alleyway). A nice companion to the excellent Peter Hessler article in the New Yorker called Hutong Karma, not online anywhere, in the 2/13-20/2006 issue. The NY'er article and Todd's experiences seem very inline with what I saw in China for the brief time I was there last year.
Check the video here. Good stuff.
