A bum dressing in torn clothes walked suspiciously into a grocery store. I did not lift my eyes to look at him when he came in. After he left the store, his smell hung in the air for a while.

The years passed, and, except for few old people, many people forgot what the revolutionary was. The people thought the subsistence conditions were better after the revolution. The leader made people sing the patrotic songs every Sunday.

Although most Buddha statues face east, the biggest Buddha statue in the world faces Bejing. The Buddha was completely built in 1993.

Just a note on susiciously. I'd take it that the bum was suspicious of something, not that the 'I' felt suspicious about the bum.
