On my last day in Beijing my friend was off work and so we headed to the infamous Antique Market together. We had a great time roaming the stalls, so many things on offer, great people-watching as well. Some clearly old things, some clearly not so old, but overall a very nice mix. You find everything from ceramics, to Mao posters and collectables, books, old suitcases (wanted to buy them all!), jewelry and clothing. A really nice place! Afterwards we went for our last feast at the local dumpling house and a footmassage right from heaven! And off I was to my next adventure in Bali the next day!!
I had a great time in Beijing - China is such a different and sometimes difficult place. No, I did not enjoy the smog, the unbelievable crowded metros, spitting, the crazy taxi drivers and did I mention the smog? But somehow I have this thing for China though - I always get hooked! Looking forward to return soon!
