I'm going to start calling Kelly & Myself KYDS for short (Kelly Yen + Daisy Sun) This isn't a cool thing, it's just...easier and maybe kind of cute :)
Chinese New Years is in a couple days, which means most all the migrant workers and many local Beijingers have cleared out for the week long holiday. We took the chance to explore one of the more crowded markets called Panjiayuan. Panjiayuan is known for being the craft/beads/flea-market. Other common names include the Dirt Market or Antique Market, even though most of the goods here are reproduced "antiques." Either way, this made for a full-framed afternoon on a solid winter day. KY and I were left with colds the next day, after we lost our toes and noses to the unforgiving winter day. Regardless, we got our fix for beads and other miscellaneous items with our eyes.
