A nighttime game of cards. And, for the record, I can neither confirm nor deny that said game involved the possible exchange of monetary instruments.
And, watching a game of Mahjong.
Chong Chong watching a game of Xiangqi.
Earlier this month, Shanshan and I were taking Chong Chong on a nighttime stroll around our community. When we were passing by our favorite traditional Beijing restaurant, he wanted to break away from us. So, we let him, and here’s what happened.
He has a thing for stairs, so he climbed up some of them, and then started playing around. He caught the attention of one of the costumed greeters, who then helped him up to the top.
After she brought him to the top, the greeter went inside, and one of the managers came out to spend time with him, and coax him inside (I just love this shot of greater taking a picture of him).
After he was safely inside, one of the other managers grabbed him, and took him to the front of the restaurant to see the bian lian performance that was in progress.
He was just in time to see the performer as Sun Wukong!
This picture was taken around 1 pm today by with Shanshan with her iPhone 6 at the Solana mall.
Oh, and continuing the theme from yesterday, the AQI was around 20 when this picture was taken.
This picture was taken as we crossed over Hui Xin Xi Jie, the street which our apartment complex is facing (you can see one of the towers directly to the left of Chong Chong’s head). The streets and avenues here can be massive… more on the scale of major freeways in California. Likewise, the pedestrian over-crossings can also be quite huge.
