Crane decor.

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?

It appeared that about a dozen ladies who worked for the same company were holding a meeting in this little cafe… I wish we knew what they were up to!

Natalie was nice enough to show me around Beijing while the Mr.’s were confrencing.
It was really cold in Beijing so we took a little rickshaw back around the little lakes.

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.

  3. Deirdre’s dorm cranes are so adorable. I am now thinking it would be so fun to do a crane themed baby shower with mini cranes?!
