How many times you can go to the Great Wall in your life? Is it fair that it rained?
I have a great time. Amazing experience shooting for my video school project on my white elementary school uniform around local chinese people trying to sell me things thinking I was a doctor.
The rains arrived and I walk around my blue umbrella. Hiking there could be challenging, specially the areas with really old steps.
I took an organized trip to get to this far away park, 3 hours from Beijing, the lunch meal was included but it was the worst thing I eat so far.
At 5 pm I was again in my hostel. After the rain I feel chili and getting a cold, not again!!!
So I search for a vegetarian restaurant recommended in many guides, not far from my place. After a long corridor of amazing restaurant where you can see chinesse people eating un-named food, I arrived to a tiny hided hutong. It was exactly in the place a french accunturist student told me in the road two blocks before when I got lost.
It is the best restaurant EVER, I wish I can open a restaurant like this in US, or Mexico someday...is a mix of Yo San medicine treatment in a food format. Every dish it has a secret formulas to make you feel weel. And everythings is with herbs, roots, and fake meats...full of fresh vegetables...I love this place. A great concept. it is sourrand books of tradicional medicine and refined style. Is Vegetarian fancy.. tasty and healthy...I have never seen a restaurant like this anywhere. I want one at home!!! I would come back here to study herbal medicine food/recipies for sure someday in this time life. Maybe I can invite you to a private meal like the one I had yestarday at home.
It was expensive. yes:( because I ordered wrong, my foul. I ask for to many dishes.
It costed me 20u$. But you can eat there for half of this price, and it really worth it. It´s name is Baihe Courtyard. Nobody speaks English but there are many foreings and menus in English.
Today, to Summer Palace!
