Beijing

Beijing 24th October 2011

Just behind the Gucci shop on Wangfujing Shopping Street there is a narrow alleyway. It is just to the left of the store as you face it. If you walk too fast you will probably miss it, you will see all the Chinese lanterns hanging above all the street vendors. It’s just over there by the tourist group with the white hats.

Sorry, did I say white hats…. I meant yellow jackets

Anyhow, now you have found it, if you are able to elbow your way through that bouncing black ball pool of 5ft Chinese heads as they stampede from one delicatessen to the other then just take a look at what these cohorts are munching on.
Ok, so you don’t have to go down there if you don’t want to. There are some great stores nearby that you can visit where you can buy all kinds of Primarni, Adddidas and genuine Rolex watches so its understandable that you don’t want to go.
But let me just show you what you missed anyhow…..

You can always go back there later on if you’re a bit peckish……
