I’m on my way to Tanzania. I’m not sure if I’ll have internet access there, so I scheduled some posts from our trip to Beijing. 🙂
Since Mara and Gunther come to China for my wedding, they also wanted to visit Beijing. So Star and I went there to meet them on 7/24. After we check-in at the hotel, we went to the most famous Roast Duck place in Beijing.
The chef comes with a cart with the whole duck and slices it in front of us.
To eat it, we place on a pancake some sliced scallion, a thick soy sauce and 1-2 pieces of duck
roll it and bon apetite! 🙂
Mara and I haven’t seen each other since my last visit to Germany, 1.5 years ago. We’re both glad that we’re increasing the frequency of our meetings! 🙂
We walked around and saw mini scorpion BBQ.
obviously Gunther had to had one! 🙂
and there was a traditional skill show on the street: blow a candy monkey
as I blow, the man was making the monkey
voila, a candy monkey blowed by myself 😉
We also had the famous 狗不理 dumplings
we went to 老舍茶馆, a traditional tea house to see a chinese show
Although I’ve been in Beijing many times before, but this time with Mara and Gunther is the most fun one. Well… I guess I’ll have fun wherever I go with these two people! 😉
More to come! 🙂
