Contrasting lifestyles

LG Twin Towers in the central area of Beijing. Picture taken from the backside of them. On the front side, people in business clothes hurries between office and restaurants during lunch hour. Passing by stores that have the same products as in the western world.

Just by tipping the camera slightly down to the right, another life occur. Small houses, three wheel bicycles used to take vegetables to the market. Chickens running free on the courtyard.

Salary for these people are according to western standards very low! And difference between the business people and these people selling vegetables is huge. But do these people complain? If you ask them, they will not say they have a bad life. They will tell you that for the moment they do not have so much money. But soon in the future  they will have. Then they continue by telling you what car they will buy!
