Fact: Chinese people have great time management skills. When they say meet at 9:00am, they mean on the dot.
We went to the Capital Museum today. I wish I knew more about the culture and rich history to really appreciate all that was inside this massive museum.

Hutongs are alleyways or narrow streets filled with a variety of stores. Historically, hutongs used to be residential neighbourhoods. Due to gentrification (got this word from my second year Urban Sociology class) the hutongs turned into a place with more practical uses. Along the streets of the hutongs you can find cafes, places that sell stuff like scorpions, accessories stores, and a whole bunch of other specialty stores.
