Sister, who lives in the capital emperor at the foot, to the Second Ring, the real prime locations.Over the years, he went to her home many times, basically to “Ghost Street” food.Due to busy ramble homely, we will neglect the scenery here.Today in Beijing, I whim, finished dinner, determined to go “Ghost Street” experience the nightlife of old Beijing.  In my heart, “Ghost Street” of the word strange mystery full of color.Located within the Dongzhimen, Dongzhimen overpass east from the western section of the Second Ring Road, west to the eastern end of the street crossing East Main Street, why is it called “Ghost Street” mean?I think, probably due to the Rideau Street, 150 commercial shops, 148 catering industry and is open 24 hours, even late at night here, will be lit.So become as the “Ghost Street” right!  Later, her husband told me that the real ghost street origins, he is listening to the original living in Dongzhimen original indigenous milk has died Regardless say.It is said that the Qing Dynasty in Beijing gates each have a specific use, are not free to use, the court must take Deshengmen troops, withdraw troops go Yongding Gate, the execution of criminals go Xuanwumen, Dongzhimen but only as a special transport timber and toward the town outside the city gates to transport the dead.Over time here naturally formed grocery market sale of vegetable and fruit-based, opened late at night to take kerosene lamp light, flickering lights in the distant look, this is the first name “ghost city” Later, more strange is here operating a variety of industries are in a downturn, only catering booming, even more surprising is that there are few customers during the day, only a handful, at night, is booming, busy, busy school.There are legends because after dark ghosts have come into the city for dinner, so the street can only open a restaurant.”So, like restaurants springing up everywhere, but everyone is booming, full household, described as flourishing, flowers everywhere.  Of course, there are about “Ghost Street” in other legends, not going Statement.Into the streets, into the first sign above my eye a noodle shop, is great, “Zhong Kui” word, Zhong Kui is one of the famous Chinese folk god, was later incorporated into the Taoist immortal system, his main function is to Buffy.Although he looks leopard head and eye, Impartial Qiu temples, looks strange, but in fact he is a talented, full of wit and ability, but also noble spirit CY, outspoken.At this point, I think, because now is not the devil everywhere lawlessness, so now Zhong Kui Buffy had come into the sea for a living of it!  Then move forward, the entire street, Raise the Red Lantern, fluttering in the wind.Pedestrian crowds, diners cup Gong staggered..A bustling scene.Although at this time is 22:30, a lot of waiters put tables and chairs are former shop, just beginning to open for business.  In the street I saw the ghost of the most busiest restaurant chain name is “Hu”.The main features are a spicy crawfish, frog glutton.It is said that Hu is a big boss man called “Shrimp Girl”, Anhui, early 80s engaged in aquatic products wholesale in the Great Bell Temple.97 years Ghost Street set up a small Menlian, fresh crayfish monopoly.Shrimp female superior ability to pick shrimp, one to two to go here to become the capital’s most famous wholesale crayfish, shrimp female, hence the name.In 2000, “Hu restaurant,” the official opened considerable popularity.  I doubt the whole street almost every “Hu” chain store outside the shop are filled with people, outside the shop, they sit a bunch of laid-back chat, talk, watch TV, melon seeds.That they are sitting outside waiting in line to eat, buy a number, giving new fried melon seeds buy food before No..And so lined up, you hear a radio call certain numbers can dine.  Hu did not go through a large, leather seeds are spread over the floor.Seeds from the skin color can be judged that the fresh seeds fragrant.Even passing also want to sit there and knock a handful of seeds incense, etc. Arranging a return to addiction, perhaps it is a pleasure.  In addition to ghost street can be seen everywhere in the hotel food, you can still see a lot of selling a variety of elves jewelry, Ling Lang everywhere, dizzying.I appreciate the deep interest of each novel, suddenly, a close-up thing that catches my eye, a forty-year-old middle-aged man, look calm, in the dim light of the lantern dim, focusing on the work of the hands.He is a lively and interesting plasticine familiarity with carved characters.I look at the flea market, there are various attitudes of magical characters, dignified lady classical, contemporary trendy girl, and “bear infested” strong in the head and current popular radiant.By this time, he was as a boy of five or six on-site production, he grabbed the boy’s demeanor instantly expressions, lifelike, vivid lifelike.Work has been basically completed.I could not help but think of the primary school had a “clay figurine Zhang” have forgotten Synopsis textbooks, but I could feel that this is the man and his work, is the heritage of Chinese folk art of it.  I give the artist and his work took those pictures, as when the baby collection.  Unconsciously, I was under the big red lanterns and neon walking for nearly two hours, from entering the ghost street, my phone has been in no signal state, I was surprised asked about his side, how is this going his answer weird but let me Lovers are, he said: because this is the ghost Street!  On the way back, I found this in the beginning of the Chinese street food most, there is a clear sign: Gui Street.I was suddenly overthrown the impression has been that “Ghost Street” word.As for the “Gui” in origin, I think perhaps the evolution of a civilization, or related to the diet it.  Double Street, very stylish, it has to be part of the cultural capital of night life, its actual meaning may be beyond the scope restaurant wine shop.Beijingers a side reaction of everyday life, it is a longing for a leisurely Beijingers minds, eager joy, even chatting leisurely place.  Double Street is a “diet of rivers and lakes,” Come on, it’s worth a product.
