Beijing's bright points
As you may already be aware, this Migrant Worker spent last week in Beijing, in an effort to mix business with pleasure and prepare for a (short-term) relocation to the Big Stinky early next year. Between the pollution, traffic, increased cost of living, and dearth of people who think they are important (present company included, obviously), I have been dreading the move for the last few weeks. But in an effort to focus on the positive, this is my photographic documentation of one of the best parts of Beijing:
Yes, that is a biscuit you see on the right-hand side of my plate.
That being said, Beijing was much better than I expected it to be. I saw blue sky on two separate days, baked cookies in a real oven, and almost went to the BBC symphony orchestra concert (the cellist Wang Jian, who I am dying to see live, only played the 2nd night and I was indisposed at the time — by China Eastern Airlines). I’ll be taking Beijing by storm as early late December and as late as Jan 15th.
