Photo taken on Aug. 8, 2008 shows the art performance of the opening ceremony of the Beijing Olympic Games, titled "Beautiful Olympics", in the National Stadium, also known as the Bird's Nest, in north Beijing, China.
In my city here in China, I sometimes see a woman shouting out “旧衣服换鸡蛋 (jiu4 yi1 fu huan4 ji1 dan4)! 旧衣服换鸡蛋!” on the street. I didn’t understand what she was saying when I heard it for the first time.
And later one of my Chinese friends explained me that those women would give you some eggs in exchange for your old clothes. I think it is a very reasonable system. China is really a recycling-oriented superpower. -- rjberki -- More>>>
