scotchinmyglass: Hello I am afraid I could not agree less. Voyage Coffee provided something I had not found so far in China, a great Cappuccino! Visiting Beijing we happened upon this great little place. 100 degrees or -25 degrees, I do not care. Sometimes a great "cap" does the trick. The staff was amazing and the coffee was great. When it comes to "Caps", so far China has served up a whole lot of milk and nothing else. I was so happy to find the place and their warm and friendly staff. My country of origin is Canada and I have been living in China for almost a year, with an eye on staying longer. If anyone can provide other great coffee sources I would love to hear what else is out there. http://glassocotch.wordpress.com
smscott: Sounds like a great place! When you say "The other half of the eatery’s name belies its other, floral focus" perhaps you mean "signifies" or "refers to" instead of "belies". To belie something, according to the Oxford dictionary, is to "Fail to fulfil or justify (a claim or expectation)", but it seems that you were quite satisfied with the flowers, as well as the food!
prairiedawn: Hi jpachl - I just gave the number listed a call; apparently the boss was stuck in traffic coming back to the city and so he opened late that day, around 8pm. He confirms it's otherwise business as usual!
mattaya: 1. To end Violence for good because that way I could feel safe wherever I go. 2. To find a cure for all diseases because people suffer way too much. And these are good people we are talking about that don't deserve any of the suffering that they have to endure. 3. Last wish I would want to be granted is to be able to have some sort of super power because I love superheroes and having a super power would be cool. But I would be like Spiderman or Superman and use those powers for the good of the world.
kpnavin: I am quite sure that a relationship that cannot last if you are not together is defenitely not more important than your career . Now you have a choice , What if in future you dont have a choice and have to move away from your parter for few months ? Then you should not feel for having turned down a better offer . TO my eyes this is defenitely not a question to think about standing blind. You can very well choose to go where you want rather than being in a "conditional love".

amekurin: My memorable sunrise was in Machu Picchu in Peru, 3400m high on altitude. I took train from Cuzco, and stayed at hotel on top of Mach Picchu. I was young ( and stupid of course), so I drank strong local alcohol, Pisco Sour at that night. When I woke up in the morning at 4am, I was overwhelmed by strong headache and nausea . It was surly a hangover + altitude sickness. Still, seeing sunrise in Machu Picchu was a highlight of the travel, so I enforced myself to explore the ruin. 3 hours later, I was in the train, lied with oxygen mask, and on the way back to Lima urgently. I spoiled the following 3 days schedule in Lima.
If you plan to witness something special in somewhere special, you have to prepare yourself with best condition, that's what I learnt.
stech: The most impressive sunrise I had ever seen came over the Nevada mountains and desert after my first year at Burning Man on the day after the temple burned.
There were around 7000 people who stayed after the burn, sitting around in quiet tones for hours and hours, just watching the flames, and then the embers die down into coals that heated us despite the cold night, while the other people who had watched the temple alight had long since left back to their camps far in the distance to blast EDM music,
Those who stayed, and had the respect for the temple, just stayed and watch the stars under clear skies, the din of the parties drowned out by the magnificent views.
In time, all too short, we realized that the back of the night was giving rise to shades of blue grey, ever so slightly changing to an orange hue in the passing seconds, over the mountains in the distance.
When the first stab of blinding orange yellow first emerged, the thousands who had remained to pay our respects, smiled and hugged one another. and cried, as this meant the 10 day journey was at a close, but no one spoke.
funkydiego: It was a festival in Portugal a few years ago. After dancing all night long with friends, we were exhausted but happy. We were going back to our tents when we noticed sun was rising over the cliff we were heading to. We went on top of this cliff, sat next to each other... and we all just went silent. Like around a table when nobody is speaking, it means the food is delicious, the same happened. The sun emerging from the far distant cliffs, showing a full array of colours, melting in the blue sky, the blue lake, the green hills and everything reflecting in the white, gray and dark maelstrom of clouds which were going through a sort of explosion stage... It felt like the end of the world was fighting with heaven itself... We all knew we were having this one of a kind moment of life and we wanted to grab as much as we could with our eyes... Happy to be there together to share that unique moment.
mattaya: South Padre Island- an island right next to Texas by crossing over a bridge. So I was young, younger than 21 years of age at this time. I'm stationed at one of the bases in Texas and I had really never been to a place where they celebrate spring break like they did there. I heard of Cancun and seen pictures and I actually only heard of South Padre Island because the word was out. So I go down there have a wild night the day before and my crew and I decided we would sleep overnight on the beach in our truck just to see the beautiful sunrise. Oh, Boy! It did not disappoint one bit. I never in my life seen such a beautiful sunset like the one I witnessed there. Sadly, I've only made that journey once and I always feel like the young spring breakers will have the same experience if they did exactly that. To stay on the beach to see the sunrise as the sun slowly comes up from a distance far out over the ocean blue. One time was enough for me. The world is beautiful and I cherish times like that when the world seems like it's falling apart at times.
jollyjack: I don t usually wake up early enough to see the sunrise but one day before I departed off to University, I managed to see the sunrise in Taipei at 4:45 AM. A beautiful array of warm colors, with hints of orange and red. Took a pic on my old motorola phone and said goodbye to the city the next day. Good memories.
