Katie and I are in Beijing today. Now that the apartment situation has been squared away, we decided to get out of town. If Shanghai is Vegas and LA combined, then Beijing is Dallas mixed with Detroit. Sound unpleasant? That’s because it is. It’s 22 degrees Fahrenheit, adding to the discomfort, but it’s just not a very pretty city. Everything is drab and covered in a thin layer of dirt. Street blocks are half a mile long and the two metro lines never go where you want them to.
