    The watch of your vision has become reasonable today.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    Oops! Missed this thread, which explains my ignorance concerning spot's "adorable" son. I remember I was too jealous to read it as in the seventies I spent a year living in Zurich and didn't want to think of my former exciting life which has now been replaced by a dull one.

    We're away again, this time in Beijing. I'll update this thread with this account it I may. It's warm here and 3am while jet lag persists so the boy is flat out on a sofa.

    Well, THAT should be fun.
    Hope they have improved the air since I was there.

    I hope you get to the Summer Palace while there.

    You two have turned into real globetrotters!

    Honestly, I'll be fascinated by your impressions of China and the Chinese.

    Not counting anyone's money, but you must be loaded.

    It's been a long trip, the boy grabbing the odd hour of sleep when possible. I had several hours once we were here. He built some Lego so he's settling in. We shall take some photos tomorrow. The underground is well signposted, we registered our arrival at the local police station, we bought food, there's very little traffic noise with the door shut. I even unpacked the rucksacks.

    As for initial impressions of the locals, people have been uniformly helpful and well disposed. We've not been near any touristy places yet. The food shop was a reassuring sight but there's no hint of breakfast cereals there yet.

    You might find 7-11 useful. They have a few things like that.
