November in Jingdezhen, China.

You You Ka Fei Shu Ba. Coffee and book bar.
Olga's from Spain and her boyfriend is from Shanghai. This is their living room.
There are acres and acres of these 3-story, abandoned buildings, made entirely from crumbling brick, with irregularly sized doors, and tiny rooms filled ankle-deep in rat turds and dead bats. I get different stories depending on who I ask: it's new and for sale; the developer went bankrupt and committed suicide; they're waiting to be finished. In America you would see graffiti and signs of squatters and teen parties, but these erode ignored and unmolested.
