Beijing, Baby!

A few years ago, Heather and I traveled to Prague and stayed in a former Communist prison cell—just for grins. The hotel I found for us here in Beijing is even more dungeon-like. We’re actually below street level. But it’s $30 a night and I do like a good bargain. We’ve visited the Forbidden City and Tian’anmen Square and are going tomorrow to the Great Wall. I snapped this picture of Heather posing with Chairman Mao at the Gate to the Square. I’ve found the food here especially good, but we haven’t yet tried the Beijing Duck. I’m trying to find an English language cooking class. -Alex
