Two days ago, we were taken to a tourist trap called the “Minority Restaurant.” We were supposed to see examples of Chinese Minority cultural performances. Here’s a sample:

Decided to break with the tour group yesterday and walked about five miles through the Northwest part of Beijing. Incredible. Will post pictures of that trip later.

By the way, I can’t read my blog here. Nor can I read Wikipedia. Apparently the Chinese government feels threatened by both.
