The room was clean and comfortable, but the tub drained so slow even for a shower you ended up with several inches of water in the bottom. Very nice getting two bottles of water a day complimentary. And a great little grocery store just down the road where you can get a 20 oz soda bottle for abotu $$0.50 :o)

After a variety of attempts we managed to get back to our road. Although it wasn’t late ...
... real. All signs were in English and there was a KFC, McDonald’s and Starbucks! Our problem of dinner was solved. We had a KFC chicken sandwich and dragon twister. We were pretty happy to see some places familiar to us, but they seemed out of place in Beijing! At least we knew where we could breakfast. All the stores started closing around 9:00 pm so we headed back to our hotel at that point and called it a night. ...
... that have enjoyed their Hot Pot experiences but it is one of the few China dining experiences I would prefer to not repeat.
Oh Chuan'er, wherefore art thou?
I'm no pre-history buff, but prior to the invention of the 'pot' and after the discovery of fire, I assume the cavemen simply killed their dinner and cooked it over an open flame. BBQ was born. In northwestern China (central Asia) where the Muslim influence is prominent, lamb, ...
