When I was a child, I took a minibus to visit my wife on Hebei Street. I always passed by Erpifang, but I never walked in. It wasn’t until several years ago that I came here for the first time to eat chicken and hot pot. After eating, it was already dark outside. Nothing. But last year, the long and narrow open space surrounded by old buildings has transformed into a colorful "community living room" for the neighborhood. It is much more interesting than the canned playground, and the space and seating really make the neighborhood "fighting".
Even in the mornings of school days, the usage rate of the playground is very high. There are elderly people who come to chat or do stretching exercises, housewives who take care of their children and "hitting their teeth", and of course children who have not gone to school. The little sister next to me pointed to the sky and muttered to herself. It turned out that the plane was flying by. Then I pointed to the sparrow who was trying to hide in the water pipe to rest, but her small eyes couldn't keep up with the speed of the sparrow.
In addition to the large number of people, Erpifang also has a surprisingly large number of entrances and exits and barbershops. Six entrances and exits lead to different directions; there are at least three barbershops, and the most flat single cut is 53 yuan. Erpofang and Tsuen Wan West are probably only separated by a Yangwu Road, but the opposite is another world, and the price of haircuts will probably be doubled or tripled.
