work, work, work
these guys were working so hard at T-square yesterday. keep in mind the summer olympics is being held here in beijing in 2008, so there is a lot of construction/refurbishing going on all over the city. these guys are pulling up bricks, notice the lack of tools, and throwing them all in a big pile. once they're all pulled up, they'll lay a new layer with new bricks. and this area is HUGE! our tour guide said the actual floor of bricks is 14 layers deep-of bricks! don't worry, these guys are just re-doing the top layer. but still-the workers are so old andhaving to work so hard. it's really sad to see the faces of the older generation here. they're so wrinkle-y; it's hard to imagine all they've been thru in their lives, it's almost like their faces say it all. i keep thinking how neat it would be to bring over a team of americans and all our advanced tools/machinery-and show these guys how to use it. i bet they've never even anything like what we have. wow! God truly has blessed america!
