Just had a weekend in the city of Yinchuan. Very nice it was too. On the walk to the bus stop to head for the station and home we passed a number of buildings with extremely scantily clad women in the brightly lit windows.

"The bus comes in five minutes and you must take your clothes off and back on so... yes."
The cheek of it!
