San Lun Che and Lions

Taken two days ago outside our closest traditional Beijing restaurant.

It is snowing right now. In a few minutes, we’ll be “trekking” the long block or so needed to get there. Lao Lao and Lao Zu have gone ahead to get seats.

I like it when it snows during Spring Festival… a nice juxtaposition of snowfall amidst the din of firecrackers.

Two Red Lanterns

The weather over the last couple of days has been absolutely wonderful. So, I’ve been eschewing the usual taxi trips and walking as much as I can. And, of course, carrying the DMC-GX7 with me.

These two lanterns are hanging outside what looks to have been an ornate traditional Beijing restaurant. As with the lanterns, the rest of the exterior is now somewhat worn.
