On this day five years ago, I was in Beijing for work. It snowed. This was the view from my hotel room.
It was a VERY different trip from when I visited China the first time as a student when I was 20. That time I had very little money and stayed a whole month. There were tears. It was hard but amazing. During this trip I stayed in a five star hotel and I went with a coworker to eat Peking Duck at a famous restaurant - work paid. I wish I had Peking Duck for dinner tonight but spaghetti it was.
I saw all of the famous faces once again. I'd like to take Jake to China one day considering he is a quarter Chinese and his great grandfather was born there.
