Jianwai Soho

Jianwai Soho

Description:

A picture of the 建外Soho group of buildings crossing a bridge section of the 东三环中路 (Middle of the East Third Ring Road). The taxi’s window was rolled up, hence the relection (unfortunately). But I think the picture does the district justice.

Half of the buildings in the group are still under construction, presumably as part of Beijing’s preparations for Beijing 2008. At night you can see beautiful trails of metal shards flying from the tops of the buildings as construction continues throughout the night.

The Virgin Jet Li

The Virgin Jet Li

Description:

A rather scary-looking and weird, sinic depiction of the Virgin Mary (looking over her blond, blue-eyed child).

She looks like Jet Li from one of his earlier Chinese movies (like 方世玉 Legend/Fong Sai Yuk or 黄飞鸿 Once Upon a Time in China) disguising himself as one of the nuns in the late Mother Teresa’s order.

Wise Man

Wise Man

Description:

An odd-looking man who is either a representation of Joseph or one of the Wise Men from a Christmas Diorama in China.

Kind of reminds me of Mossman from He-man.

Chocolate Cake

Chocolate Cake

Description:

Finding a good cake in China is harder than you might think. Something to do with the flour generally used with the cakes. So it was nice to be able to pick up an attractive-looking chocolate cake from a little cake-shop inside a mall.

It didn’t taste too bad to be honest. It was a mouse-cake but thick to the point that it had the consistency of jelly. The top layer was very rich and thick, so a bit heavy on the pallette and stomach. But a nice treat when shared between two!
