Then grandpa Bai returned to his hometown in Changxia County in southern China, hoping to live the rest of his twilight years there. But fate was not going to let grandpa Bai retire there.

A day in February, 1983. Godfrey Reggio is standing in front of the old Reichstag in Berlin. A tall, gaunt man with pale blue eyes and a graying beard that looks like stubble, he has just presented Koyaanisqatsi at the Berlin Film Festival. Because renting in London is full of confusion, mystery, and dodgy listings of ‘roomy studio’ flats with just enough room for a fold out single bed.We’re hoping that by looking at what people are actually paying and what they’re getting in return we’ll help get a better sense of what we should be asking for when it comes to renting a place.We pay 573 each and I live with two other people.Council tax is 31 each a month, and other bills are variable, we usually get stung with a big one every three or four months!And what do you get for that price?There are three bedrooms, a kitchen, and a bathroom, we also have two balconies. We don’t have a living room, which would bother a lot of people, but the kitchen is big with a dining table in it and we have the balcony for communal areas.We also get on quite well so we hang out in each other’s rooms as well. I’ve actually just bought a couch for my friend’s room as we used to have one in there (he has the biggest room) so we can chill in there.The house is in Shoreditch.

Andrej Sekera. He’s yet to play his “A” game in the playoffs, but he’s still been mostly steady and effective.
