We departed Beijing after spending the morning watching Game 6 of the NBA Finals on CCTV and having lunch at another local restaurant. Each of China’s 34 provinces has distinct culinary offerings, and as the capital city Beijing has restaurants that reflect these unique menus.
I’ve had several Chinese people come up to me and want to take a picture with me, and that happened again as we left our hotel in Beijing. I’ve decided that from now on I want to reciprocate and ask them to use my camera, too. I don’t know whether it’s being American, or tall, or some combination, but I suppose most Chinese people don’t see someone who looks like me very frequently.
This morning’s post is a short one because our lecture this time is at 9 a.m. instead of afternoon. Later we’ll tour the hospital and take a tour of the Summer Palace.
