Beijing in October
Ouch, we have not been writing anything in a while, time to catch up at least somewhat.
In October 2014 we had a business-pleasure trip to China and Japan.
We'll start with China.
The reason for the Beijing visit was participation in an industry conference. The conference itself did not generate any cool images, but their lunch buffet was pretty colorful.
There were European, American and Chinese cuisine options..
At the same time Ksusha went to meet with a doll tailor that we met before at some doll convention in US.
And then Ksusha with her friend went to lunch as well
And then they went for a walk in the huton district, since the weather was unusually nice for Beijing, you could even see the blue sky.
NanLuoGu lane in 7 QianGuLouYuan huton is a historic district from 800 years ago, reflecting Yuan dynasty traditions. Classical fish skeleton design.
A special budget version of a famous European bicycle anti theft device?
And now let's get back to the hotel.
Overall the room size is quite decent, esp. comparing to the typical Japanese room size we are accustomed to.
Also, mandatory dinner pictures
Also we noticed a very strange sign on top of ATMs nearby. "Cash recycling system"?
These are all the pictures from the Chinese visit.
OH, by the way Ksusha also visited the BJD shops we found in 2010 and it turned out that two of them permanently closed, so only one still remains at the old location.
