Beijing in May

Posted in Uncategorized  by admin on May 6th, 2009
The weather is getting warmer, but it is still quite comfortable in Beijing.  The sun is shining above the haze that always seems to cloud the atmosphere.  The rest of the world is suffering in the economic down turn.  I understand that the industrial parts of China are under a lot of pressure, as well.  Here in Beijing, there aren’t any signs of an economic slow down.  But, China tends to always show its best side.

The preperations for the 2008 Olympics last year really beautified the city.  The parks along the highways, as well as major intersections, have colorful flower plantings that are always replaced before they get old or die out.  Any scrap of paper that manages to get away, is immediately picked up by the many street cleaners.

I got a suprised when I arrived.  I hadn’t heard from my landlord after I advised her that I would be coming to town.  When I got here, I found out that she is closing her service apartment business.  I think that business is not good and the baby is a reason to change directions.  I’ve been staying in a vacant apartment that my friend, Bill, is sub-letting.  Tonight the guy moves in, so I will find a new place to stay.

Jenny and her Fiance

It is the May Day holiday in China.  My friend Jenny, the medical student,  had her future husband in town from Shanghi to meet her parents.  She wanted me to meet him, as well.  He is a 30 year old software engineer with a very promising career ahead.  I like him.  There is no date for the wedding, but I hope I can attend.

Lao Ren and Ms. Wong

Yesterday,  the two people who were with me when I had my accident and I took a motorcycle ride.  I didn’t know that Lao Ren had a small house in the country.  It is about 30 kms. north of the city in a small village.  Of course, the urban area is approaching, but there are still fields of crops to walk through and the noise of the city is far away.  It has two rooms which face a courtyard that serves as a garden and motorcycle parking area.  Ms. Wong made a nice lunch and I had a nap while they did some things around the house.  It was a very pleasant afternoon with two very good friends.
