Sidewalk Hazards

City of Xinzheng, Henan

6. Sidewalk Hazards

This is a scene just outside the foreigner teacher's flat. It shows the wide bicycle lane with trees along both sides, the divided barrier between the bicycle lane and the vehicle lanes. You can see the differences between this picture taken in 2002 and the one to the left taken in 1998. I took this one to show how much the trees have grown and also to show you about the hazards of riding a bike or even walking on the sidewalks. Notice the two guy wires angling across the sidewalk. Also notice the hole in the sidewalk where someone has removed a cover off of a valve in the sidewalk. It has been off for two months.
