Eating Beijing Duck with a few extra dishes. Noteworthy is the sea cucumber (dark dish to the right) that didn’t taste like much but the spice. Felt like jelly in the mouth. Ate it twice when I was in China this year. Not sure I’ll ever eat it again. The duck was delicious though.

27th July 2007 Yilan – Harbin – Beijing What a sucky night. C almost coughed her lungs up. At 2.30am we had to get up and stop C’s cough. I made some hot water that she breathed a bit of steam from, and also she drank a bit to soothe her worn throat. Sitting in […]

1th July 2007 Beijing Landed in Beijing 35 min after schedule. The passport business was easier than expected, though the laowai line was slower that the one my wife could use. The officer checking out my papers was fast and smiling. I would be smiling too, if I had 5 buttons for the costumers to […]
30th June 2007 Aalborg-Beijing Note: the Internet on the hotel is pretty unstable. It’s there, but accessing some sites is next to impossible. Using outlook to send emails is no good, and I have to use a sluggish webmail to send we-have-arrived-safe-and-sound-mails to my relatives. This also means that posting this entry took ages and […]
It’s soon now. Only 4 days before we’ll be on a plane towards Beijing. We’re as ready as can be with the obvious exceptions. We need packing the few things that can’t be fixed before the last day anyway. Stuff like toothbrush, shampoo, shaving gear, mobile phones, gadget-chargers and so on. Then there’s the note […]
