The hotel we moved Andrew into after the end of the shortened lease has become an old standby. He Jia Binguan is a pretty good, pretty cheap place to stay in Wudaokou, for only 158 kuai per night. Previously, all the rooming had been done in the main building, but this time they utilized the second building. I'm not entirely sure why they decided to do this, but I've learned that it's better to just not ask questions for some things.
There's alot of construction going on in that building, however, and it starts at about 6 in the morning. Today, it was particularly bad. I walked into the room, and the first thing I said was, "Wow, they've got quite the team of unskilled monkeys working around here, don't they?" because that's what it sounds like. It sounds like they've given monkeys hammers and let the banging commence.
We joked that there's actually a team of seals and babies working with them, too. Because of how Beijing businesses contract construction workers, however, a reasonable number of workers (5 monkeys, 6 seals, and 2 babies) would have to have give way to something ridiculous (30 monkeys, 20 seals, and well over 200 babies). That explains the noise.
I went to the desk and got the room changed this morning. I don't mind a seal in a hard hat even so often, but you've got to consider sleep quality sometimes.
