A Street Sweeper in Beijing

I went to China for the first time in 1987 as part of a group of professors from Heidelberg College. We spent our first night in Beijing at the Friendship Hotel. I was up early the next morning and found this street sweeper with her broom sweeping the driveway in front of the hotel. For some reason the sight of her convinced me that I really was in China.
