My lovely friend, Kelly Yen (KY for short) arrived last week for a 6 month project in Beijing!! We went to the University of Washington together in Seattle for college, and then she went onto SLC, Utah until... well now ;) I am ecstatic that she is here, and this is only the start of our 6 month adventure. Here's a post from our weekend, which starts with picking up LOTS of food, and how we got to getting it into our bellies. Neither of us have had Shin Ramen in ages, so what better way to celebrate than to get a bunch of veggies from the local market, pop in a few eggs, and do dinner? Try not to drool on your keyboard.
The great thing about Beijing is how simple life can be through the hustle and bustle of it all. Every week, I look forward to going downstairs to the local market around the corner, and it's as if you've stepped out of the city for a moment (shots below!)
Stay tuned for part deux of the weekend adventure to the flea-market!
