Some more pictures, as promised, from our trip! It's only been what, 2 1/2 weeks since I got back?
The view from our hotel room. The streets get really crowded as everyone gets off work.
Random from the hotel lobby.
At this California cuisine restaurant (yeah, we were in China, but you have to know that when it's just two English-only speaking people going out for dinner, the most sensible and safe thing to do is go to a Western type restaurant), we got the whole upstairs to ourselves to shoot some pool.
I totally won.
No, I'm kidding. I didn't. Joseph is kind of an all-star when it comes to pool. And my skills are less than admirable.
Background: more rooftop cafe, an unsuspecting Joseph and a mediocre coffee smoothie.
Middleground: Chinese Vogue and the remains of a "happy muffin" which was actually a waffle which was actually super delicious.
Foreground: the best mango smoothie EVER ever.
And yep, Texas BBQ. On the boardwalk by the sea. In China.
Complete with live music (think "House of the Rising Sun") and a mechanical bull that, while we were there, was only ridden by two men (not at the same time). Different.
Okay, that's enough for now.
