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.
The Grand Summit, Club Building, 19 Dongfang Donglu
Lemon 7-up is absolutely delicious! They call it ningmengqi or 柠檬七.
柠檬 (lemon) + 七 (7). It’s basically 7-up with squeezed lemon in it. Delicious!
I usually order it 多多冰 (duo duo bing). 多means more/extra. In Chinese, saying something twice makes it stronger – so 多多 means ‘a lot extra’. 冰 means ‘ice’.
So I get 柠檬七多多冰 (ningmenqi duoduobing) or lemon 7-up with lots of ice. It’s possible I’m supposed to say the Ice first- my grammar isn’t that good. 😂 But they understand me! It cost me 7￥ or about 1$.
If you visit #China. you should try it. Very Good and super refreshing!
#blueraspberry and #orange #fruit drink! Tastes like blue #popsicles 😜 Puts me in the #island mood! A good thing since it’s freezing
.😂 Hah@! Tommy turtle keeps crawling on top of Timmy turtle. Mount Turtle has been mastered! 😜
