May 2010, Beijing, China

I never imagined that one could get to somewhere like here in two hours——setting out from central Beijing, you could reach the home of the city constructors. Their homes were not in the city. Going down this narrow street, you would reach a primary school for children of migrated workers. These buildings that holds used cars were far better equipped than the school.

我从来没有想象过在北京有这样的地方——只需要花上两个小时,乘地铁再转两次车,就来到了这个仿佛在北京之外的世界。他们建设着这座城市,他们家却不在这里。从这条路走进去是一所农民工小学,而这些盛放旧汽车的房子比他们的学校还要坚固。
