Alternative title: I know why the caged bird sings.
Adjacent to the flower market is a bird market. I know, I said the same thing such as really? this many birds for sale? And while some of them looked like wild birds put in a cage, I was told by some expats in Beijing that Chinese men walk their birds on a leash. [unsubstantiated information – true?]
Regardless, floating from flower market to singing birds, it is a delightful way to pass time.
