Bankhead Adventures

13 October 2009

China 2009: Beijing


In Beijing, we stayed in the super-fancy Hotel G, ate mysterious and mostly delicious food at super-fancy restaurants, met Princess Ringzinwangmo, bartered for child-sized silk pajamas, toured the Forbidden City, wandered around hutong alleys, learned how to make Chinese dumplings, sang Karaoke (The Bankheads sing an Air Supply duet, anyone?), and had several ridiculously cheap massages (90 minutes, lunch included, $15). Good times.

  • Just read this- I'm so jealous. Some day we will join you in the ranks of people who've been to a cool foreign place where they give massages and lunch all for $15.
