While staying in Guangzhou my hotel window looked out over this apartment complex. Every night when I got home i would check "the hood" to see what was happening as many of the curtains were open. Kids bouncing on beds, men without shirts with a cigarette balanced on the edge of their lip, people cooking, and reading to children. One night i watched a rat run along the balcony and into a spotlessly clean kitchen.
The outside of the building appears to be covered in soot from the pollution.
