So when my friend Natalie and I first wandered into this little Beijing Internet Cafe to do some work/studying (and some chatting too!), I was a little horrified by these pink couches–the pillows especially!
But then I looked up! Pretty festive and also very inexpensive decor don’t you think?
The cafe was in the Houhai area of Beijing, which is a bunch of lakes surrounded by willow trees, bars, and restaurants. A lot of diplomats and party officials live around here.
Natalie pointed out how surprising it is that the willow tree does so well here, so close to the Gobi dessert sandstorms. I am not sure how they make it, but they sure are romantic.
