One fairly random photo of Chinese characters in action, per week, until sometime in 2018. And perhaps longer if I'm encouraged.

This was at, I think, Badaling. I recall one customer asking what would happen if someone was desperate and had no money: "We'd let them use it, of course. We're all human."
