Jian Guo Road and East 3rd ring, Beijing

15 years ago, I came here pretty often.  Back then there weren't such high rise buildings as on all the below photos (except the Soho modern town - photo 2).  Wet market and furniture places were around here.  A very rapid growth.

April, 2015, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

This city has changed so much that over the past 20 years it's been surrounded by many high rise buildings.  Behind the modern glamour, the city has become less safe than 20 years ago.  I was warned from not showing my personal belongings in the street.  Yet, more and more taxi drivers asked for a flat fee instead of metered charges.  After all, I still enjoy my time in KL, especially in seeing some old friends.
