Young Family Living in a Restroom
Zeng Lingjun, his wife, and their new baby are living inside of a 65-square-foot men’s hotel restroom in Shenyang, China. No, this is not a new reality show. Zeng is a cobbler, and his family is residing here to due to poverty. They’ve fashioned their bed on top of two toilets, and they use the other stalls as closets. The hotel charges them $94 a month for this space. Despite these unfavorable conditions, he expresses an amazing amount of optimism, saying, “We are still young. Life will be better as long as we work hard.”
What an admirably positive outlook that we should all take note of!
