Day 3 : Hot Pot!

Last night we went to a Chinese restaurant for Hot Pot. What is that you might ask? Like the name suggests you basically get a brass cauldron filled with boiling water, simmering over hot coals. Everyone sits around this and cooks thinly sliced meat and vegetables as desired (apologies for the poor mobile pic!). Whilst I could stomach most of it I didn’t quite fancy the live shrimps – somehow watching them writhing around in water put me off! The rest was very delicious, the best part being that we were to only foreigners in the restaurant – always a good sign 🙂

Coming soon: What happens when your taxi has an accident on the middle of the expressway? Find out tomorrow!

    Maybe you'll never let us find out the answer. I check your Blog every day, but still nothing is “coming soon.”

    I hope everything's all right. And I can't wait to see the pics you took in Beijing.
