Take a look at this scene I saw today while crossing a sky bridge over the Northern Third Ring Road.

The man in the picture is trying to find someone to rent his two-bedroom apartment.

With Beijing’s high population density, sometimes even using one’s own human labor as a classified ad can be more efficient that placing one in a newspaper or online.
