Picture of the Day: Dongzhimen's Minan Xiaoqu

The courtyard in which I now live (and have for the last four months), taken July 7. Minan Xiaoqu (民安小区) means something like "safety of the citizens courtyard" or "courtyard of resident peace." The non-residential office building on the right is the headquarters of China Petrol.

Hi! My name is Peter. This is a lovely and central place to live in Beijing. The area is one of the best near "The Heart Of Beijing". I will go there 4th of september and stay until 6th of october. My wife owns an apartement in the area. I normaly end my evenings or nights at the restaurant "White Nights" near Nan Guan Park with a couple of beers, every time we come "home"! Good picture by the way! Peter
