On the way out of Beijing, I spotted this sweeper at work. Although I stopped to take pictures, since no one was around who spoke English I don't know what kind it is. However, I posted a request online for someone who knew about the sweeper to let me know. As you'll see below, we got our answer sometime later.

In September of 2004, we received the following from a man named Stephen, who works as a translator for Hyva China. Here's what Stephen told us about the sweeper in the photo.
