Driving From Beijing to Tianjin

On the way out of town we drove by this building near the hotel. It burned down at the end of the Chinese New Year festival. I guess not "down" but it will be torned down I suspect. Brand new building not yet occupied. Was going to contain a 5-star hotel amongst other uses. Firework accident. Four or five people have been arrested for negligence.

Took this picture out the car window on the expressway. The day before was the celebration of the Qing Ming festival. This is known as grave sweeping day. These are graves out in the farm fields for the local family. They are all cleaned up and decorated as a way to honor deceased family members.
