I didn't expect to see something as fragile as the butterfly living in the busy, traffic-filled environment of Maliandao. I certainly wasn't expecting to see horse-drawn carts moving goods around. The butterfly and the carts reminded me of the long history of the place, predating the arrival of the automobile. A tiny slice of vulnerable gentility in an otherwise urban setting.
