China in Photos: Day No. 2

The Number 2 brothel in Chengdu has shut its doors and more than one neighborhood resident has walked past the dark building and paused.

Are they happy its gone?  Perplexed? Amused? Sad?

Our first housing compound in Chengdu was buttressed on either side by the number 1 and number 2 brothels in Chengdu.  It’s funny, in the States one tends to prefer neighborhoods without brothels. Here, with all of the fancy cars and 8888 license plates parked outside them, its practically a status symbol.

We’ll see what goes in to this space next.  We’ll also see what happens to all of the high-end perfume and baijiu stores that once surrounded the place…
