|Bird's Nest, Beijing
Arrived late last night after an enjoyable flight thanks to my seat partner, Malin, a university student from Beijing. She was a delightful source of helpful information and terrific suggestions. Thank you, Malin, and to my new compatriot from Memphis who gave me an insightful expat's view of life in Beijing.
Meanwhile, this is the view you get when the hotel messes up your reservation. Ain't life grand?!!!
