Meng Wanzhou: The Huawei exec trapped in a gilded cage
On a corner in a leafy, exclusive area of Vancouver sits a solid-looking grey house. At the front, there is a low wall with a well-maintained garden behind.
At first sight, it appears little different to the other homes around it. But outside the main door there is a security guard and in the street others sit watching from expensive black vehicles.
This is one of two Vancouver homes owned by Meng Wanzhou, the Chinese business executive arrested at the city's airport in December.
Her detention has led to a ferocious diplomatic row between China and Canada - and accusations of retaliation by Beijing.
It has also given the world a glimpse of something rarely seen: the personal life of a member of the Chinese elite.
Ms Meng is currently on bail. She is due in court early next month (Feb 6), when she is expected to hear whether Canada will begin extraditing her to the United States. She is accused of selling telecom equipment to Iran in contravention of US sanctions.
As part of her bail conditions, she has a curfew between 11pm and 6am, has to wear an ankle bracelet that tracks her movements and must live in the grey corner house. All bail expenses are hers.
The security guard, and his colleagues, are there to make sure Meng Wanzhou does not try to escape from Canada - but they also appear to have taken on the role of shielding their charge from the prying eyes of the outside world.
"I'm sorry, I can't let you on the property," the man on duty told the BBC. He would not even reveal whether the Huawei executive was at home or out. While on bail, she is allowed to travel over much of Vancouver.
Ms Meng seems keen to protect her privacy.
