There is no such thing as gym etiquette here in Beijing. Dude brought his baby to the gym. As in, parked next to the machines he was using, and not checked into the gym daycare (if such a thing exists in China) The other day some guy was barefoot and I told him that this wasn’t his house and he should put his shoes on. My next course of action was to drop a weight on his foot. It’s unbelievable how much people in Beijing just give zero fucks about other people. Everyone is so focused on their individual lives, that everyone else becomes non-existent. This is quite apparent due to the lack of common courtesy and respect for other people. #iheartbeijing

Mid-Autumn Festival here in China, which of course means there is no shortage of mooncakes. Last year I was introduced to this Chinese pastry and quickly decided that they were not for me. But here in 2014, a full year without having tried a mooncake, I thought I should give them another chance. I realized all too well that my initial judgement had been right: Mooncakes are gross. The problem is I have at least 20 of them which were ‘gifted’ to me from various people. I know, it’s the thought that counts. Perhaps I’m pessimistic, so I’ll leave you with a hopeful thought. I’m sure there is a quality, tasty mooncake out there, but it remains to be seen, or more importantly, enjoyed.

Time lapse of traffic in Shuangjing. It’s non stop here in Beijing and this was taken around 4pm. At 6, the traffic slows to a bumper to bumper, horn honking fiasco. Side note, today was actually as gray as it appears in the video
