Too Many #Bicycles?

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! 😡

Baker & Spice

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.
