Crickets 蟋蟀

Cricket fighting is still alive in parts of Modern China ...
It is not the older generations but many younger ones
are very seriously into this ancient game started well over 2000 years ago ...

If you wonder along some of the Old Beijing streets, you will likely
to stumble into a scene of cricket fighting games ...
