One Late Afternoon in Beijing 午后北京




When we drove pass this area 百万庄 in the west part of Beijing. I saw this kind of old gray three floor flat. That is very typical "old" style flat in Beijing. At that moment of taking this picture,  I dreamed  that I moved back to Beijing and rent an apartment in this building. I go down stairs and buy groceries and food in the small shops near by. I meet friends and eat in the small restaurant  not far away from where I live....

We were waiting by the side of street for Auntie who was going to a bookstore nearby to buy some travel books for her holiday trip in Japan. I bought Anette some local food. She tried it and kind of liked it. The late afternoon light was nice.....I like this kind of "daily life" pictures which we took in Beijing. I suppose it is because that I wish for living there for real, ...so I pretend, and I imagine....

Dear Fei An, I like your posts about Beijing. Your photos, your words... it makes me feel like I'm really back there. So rare and precious, the taste of everyday life in Beijing.

Ah.. I like this post. I'm thinking perhaps you miss your life back in Beijing? By the way, does Annette like chinese food? Or do your kids like chinese foods? I'm so sad to say my kiddo does not like korean food so much. : (
