Cassie made us a great breakfast in her apartment of eggs, toast, muffins and the Stumptown Coffee we had brought from Portland. After breakfast we took taxis across town to get a Chinese massage. They set all 5 of us up in the same room. For a 90 minute, full body massage it cost about $9 US. It was great though I think my lady was a little rough (they do a lot of pounding). After the massages we taxied over to the main shopping district of Jiefangbei. We had lunch at a Western coffee shop called UBC Coffee. After lunch we went to a dvd store (you can find anything very cheap), a recreation of an old market area and a local market called Women's Street. For dinner we went to Dylan's local favorite restaurant for jiao zi, Chinese dumplings. The streets were all lit up for Spring Festival.
