A Country Mouse in Beijing

A sun-challenged city

I was in Beijing last week, for the first time. I was overwhelmed. I ate incredible food. I bought custom-tailored suits at dirt-cheap prices. I went to an amazing Russian night club. I felt like the country mouse in the big city.

Beijing has everything imaginable. Except for the sun, and a perfect-blue sky.
