Recently I have been seeing these mini-cars appearing all over the streets of Beijing!  What is going on!!?  Before, people were driving everything German here – from Audi to Porsche, people were obsessed!  However these last few months, I am seeing an addition to the squeeze that is the Beijing traffic system..  These micro cars!

Today was super cold!  It really is starting to get chilly here!  Night time temperatures are getting to -2 now, which is just the beginning of real winter in Beijing..  Beijing winters are harsh and long!  Temperatures regularly getting to -15 at night time and day time highs of -4 are normal, with wind chill temperatures […]

My trip home

My trip home

My trip home this summer was absolutely amazing!  I was so busy, but it was always doing something fun and interesting.  My main priority was to go home and be the best man for my friend James at his wedding!  Wow, what a responsibility!  I have never been a best man before so I was […]

So many people in China!

So many people in China!

Living here in Beijing is quite surreal at times.  I come from Nottingham, a ‘reasonably big’ city by UK standards, but compared to Beijing, it’s like one medium sized apartment complex!  I only saw this many people in cartoons or fake pictures before coming here.  There really is NOTHING like walking through the subway station […]

Catching up with friends

Today I spent the day catching up with friends I haven’t spoken to in a while.  The air was fresh and the sky was blue, always makes for a good day here in Beijing.   I never used to like chestnuts but now, I think I do!  These kept me busy for a while haha! […]

Dumplings!

立冬 (Lidong): Official beginning of winter

立冬 (Lidong): Official beginning of winter

Such a good day!

Such a good day!

Today I felt absolutely amazing, compared to the last few days!  My friend here described me as having a male menopause!  Wow.  So extreme haha!  Well, no, it’s just my bi-annual period of misery.  I have come to the realisation that I seem to have about 2 periods per year where I feel miserable for […]

Light relief from the smog

Light relief from the smog

Wow – can you believe today is the day after an awful smog day?!   This restaurant above translates to “King Fatty Donkey Burger”..  No, I didn’t eat there.  My lunch below was from a completely different place, it’s Kung Pao Chicken and rice, it cost £1.50!  Not bad eh?   I am not sure […]
