Sights of old Beijing, or not

Beijing, that old city of the Emperors. Such are the lanterns and lights that grace the night.

The houses are dilapidated, although caged birds continue to adorn the windows.

Common folks eke out a living, selling hot and spicy Beijing food.

Tourists are a common sight these days, not in the days of the dynasty, when the red devils are shunned and vilified.

But hold on, they sell Rojak in Beijing. Since when? Nope this is not old Beijing. Where is this then?
