China surely has the scrappiest pointing in the world. Quite remarkable. This is a particularly egregious, but by no means unique example.

I find this endlessly fascinating. In fact, I have long pondered the possibility of creating a coffee table book called The Big Book Of Beijing Brickwork. Another million-dollar idea?

Bugger me - that's ALMOST as bad as Bulgarian pointing...but not quite :-)

I sense you've had another 'bad builders' experience recently, Mothman. What else could have brought you looking for such an old post?

Actually, this is one of the better walls I've seen in Beijing.
