Beijing

Beijing was full of red lanterns down small alleys, rainy days on great walls, old men on richshaws taking you wherever you needed to be, ancient and foreboding palaces, huge calm lakes we rode on pedalos, the amazing food that was always cheap and quick, dumplings, jasmine ice cream, scorpions on sticks that were still moving as a delicious treat (not that I was daring enough to try), lotus root, baked ice cream, peking duck, did I mention the food? The cold beer, haggling markets, colourful parasols, birthday nights out, roof top bars and friends I hadn't seen in such a long time. China was everything I had imagined it to be. It was nice to be in a big city that felt really Asian. Sometimes, in Korea it's easy to forget I'm so far from home.
