Tianamen Square during the 90th birthday of the CPC Party, July 1, 2011
Yoojin, my dear friend from Cal, with me at Tianamen Square!
We went exploring a traditional alley in Beijing...
It was quiet an experience in the alley! I ate some fruit off a stick that was pretty good. It reminded me of what American's would copy in texture on the outside of the berry, but it was sweet and tart at the same time. Yum!
Ready to eat a scorpion?
These are live ones and are actually moving around even though they are stuck on a stick.
I am not sure if this should be Goal #5: Eat scorpions? What do you all think?
I watched the guy take a knife and stab the bird. It was a culture shock.
Here is the end result of that bird!
I am loving Beijing! If I don't come back don't worry, I am not kidnapped.
I may just on a whim decide to stay here.
