Aluminium windows from Beijing

In China it’s common that many objets keep parts of its original package. Adhesive films, cardboards and foams are everywhere. Is this carelessness or a true will for preservation?. I’m not quite sure.

Universal signs

AIGA alike sign in a ferry. Easily understood despite not been able to read chinese characters. I wonder how many signs (or combinations) are we familiar with due to repeated exposition during the years.

Power to the people, abandoned parking meters

Some days ago I found this unused parking meter near a comercial area in Beijing. It was installed about 5 years ago, but for nothing. I was told that car owners didn’t know how to use it, and didn’t care about the whole thing. Now it stands as a testimony of the locals slipshod sense for authority.
