Mama-less Beijing

September 23, 2012

Social dance in front of a cathedral near Wang Fu Jing

The sign says “prohibited entry for dogs & Japanese”

Bugs & scorpions & starfishes

Houhai was filled with clubs with live music

They would place their wares anywhere and in the dark


A rickshaw ride

I liked the hastily constructed panel van

Shop on Nanluoguxiang

Vandals would paste stickers saying “Diayudao is ours” on Japanese cars. Except this particular one is a Ford.

Nook in Nanluoguxiang

I spend a few hours in this bar debating the island with the owner

There would be 2 bus conductors in all the buses

The good son tour of Beijing

Our hotel was right next to Wang Fu Jing, Beijing’s premier shopping district

The lobby at the Raffles

Mama reading the day’s news, specifically the anti-Japanese propaganda

My favourite part of Beijing, Beihai Park

Mama at the Forbidden City

Roast duck at Quanjude
