... sign on a piece of cardboard which had been selo-taped to someone’s front door. We laughed at each and kept looking for the real entrance…until we realized that this ******, soggy cardboard sign was indeed the real entrance to the ‘Beijing Undeargruund Sity’. It was basically a door into someone’s dingy living room and at the end of the room was, what looked like, some stairs leading into a basement. As if that wasn’t ...
