Beiingers enjoy chatting, taking their caged birds out in the parks, gardening raising gold fish, windowing shopping and plying cards and maahjong. In the years, an increasing number of Beijingers have become coccer fans. Yong people love pop and rock music.The Hard Rock Cafe in Beijing is always crowded.
Courtyyard houses are the essential for an understanding of the culture of Beijing. The courtyyard house is the trditional form of residence for Beijingers . A house facing shouth is the most respectable. Since there is only one door leading into the courtyard, the courtyyad is a world of its own. Rooms on the four sides within the compound all open their doors toward the yard, indicating a cohensive mntality in the Chinese family. The spacious courtyard is good for planting trees and floweras , as well as for raising bireds and gold fish. Some wealthy families also build rockeries and cultivate bonsai to enjoy nature at home.
Beijingers, particualrly the old-generation residents, are known for their slow pace of life. Nurtured by the ancient culture, Beijingers have inevitable assumed an air of stateliness.They look care-free, strolling around neighborhood.
In the Qing Dynasty, the Manchurian government decreed that Manchus not engage in labor. Hanging around was the only thing left to do, For the upper class, playing music and chess, practising calligraphy and paiting and going to Peking Opera house became hot fashons, while the lower class killed the time by raising pet birds, walking dogs and figting crikets. Eventually, the ordinary residents also dveloped this laid-back lifestyle.
With a rapid socio-economic development, of course, the pace of life has quickened in recnt years. Yong people no longe like to stroll around. Compared to the lifeof New York, however, Beijing still has far to go.
