Checked out the #CCTV Tower in #Beijing yesterday, and it turned out to be a GORGEOUS day for it! Was going to go to the forbidden city, but changed our minds . . . glad we did, this trip was perfect. Great view, clear skies, and not too many people 💕
The #bike faze in #Beijing is a little crazy right now. Never thought you could overdo bicycles, but #Peking might have just managed it. There is NO sidewalk – Everywhere you are banging your knees! 😡
Beautiful, Peaceful #cafe in the heart of #Beijing!
Had to visit the US Embassy (a mess – the guards don’t speak English and sent me through the mile long Chinese line getting VISAs. The head guy found out and came to get me 😜 Soaking Wet!💦Gave them my appoinment sheet and it crumbled😂 Anyway, now just waiting before I brave the 1hr subway to the #train.
Stopped at Baker & Spice here at Liangmaqiao station. The #food is delicious! So many choices and #bread loaves! Got my mom a Walnut Bread and me a#Chocolate #cupcake. The cupcake top inside was a surprise – completely filled with chocolate mousse!!! So delicious!!! 🍴
Go to Liangmaqiao Station, Exit B.It’s right there.

I had the amazing opportunity to ride one of the famous dragon boats that floats across the man-made lake at the Beijing summer palace! So much fun!
