36. Scaffolding through Our Window Grating

This picture shows you two things, First, you can see the elaborate nine story scaffolding on the University Student Union Building at Lujiang University in Xiamen. Secondly, you get to view it through the grating on our apartment window. Every window of our apartment on the 7th floor has iron grating on each window. They put grating on each window for burglar protection. But it also means you could not escape if you encountered a fire.
