It's Friday!! Since class did not start yet and we didn't have to teach, we decided to spend the day sightseeing.
The 798 District is a famous
art district in Beijing.
|On the Chinese bus to the 798 District|
|Mona Lisa for 380 RMB? not bad.|
artsy stores with interesting
transformers/gundam looking stores and figures:
graffiti and other words on the wall:
many outdoor sculptures/figures:
|The polar bear is melting|
|black and yellow Pegasus!|
|a tired looking tree|
some interesting signs:
oh, and who can forget the tourists:
|Sheila (our professor) recommended this drink to us before we left. Inside this cute little ceramic container is a yogurt drink that tastes like lassi. Sooo good, definitely recommended.|
There was so many things to look at, but we had to meet up with the other foreign teachers for dinner. In my books, this place is definitely worth a second visit. We're just waiting for the weather to warm up a bit so we can comfortably wander the art filled streets with the cool yogurt drinks in hand.
We went to Sarangbang, a Korean restaurant in Wudaokou to meet up with the other foreign teachers, who were all really nice - soo glad to have more English speakers around.
Carrie, a Korean from Germany who speaks Mandarin and Japanese, showed us to a Korean grocery store. I got my kimchi and ketchup. Which means... eggs and ketchup for breakfast!!
