siennapc: Incredibly interesting and moving. I love all these pictures and stories. You're lucky to have lived such an interesting and colorful life, and it's clear that the adventure is only continuing. It can certainly feel weird and lonely to be so international, but it's also a privilege, and impossible to erase from your identity. I am always so shocked by movies or TV shows where the characters are people who live in their hometowns their whole lives. I sometimes envy that "normalness," but it's just not an option and I have to be grateful for that.
brittneywong: The WSJ blog post says the time period studied "between April 2008 and March 2014" is 2,028 days.
If you do the math, that means about 1.23 percent of our days during that time gave us an average of "good" air, according to U.S. standards. Any way you spin these numbers, they're crazy.
cfreschini: Hi, after reding this article I went to Qmex to try the tofu enchiladas... but it actually does not exhist!!! In the menu there is not any real vegetarian choise: all the "V" dishes in the menu contenin fish in it! So bad! ..... concerning other recomanded restaraunts please pay attention that most of the times chinese dishes (duplings for example) contain "jijing" inside which is not vegetarian at all!
onenightinbj2011: A combination of butler/bottle service in the form of a lao Beijing version of Mr. Belvedere, who can share his lao Beijing ways and how things you used to be in BJ (clean air) while sipping some Maotai
mattaya: I wish my apartment included a show just like in Vegas. That would be the best. One night it could be magic night. Another night could be the comedy night. Then you got the acrobatics shows. And add in some sports shows and it would feel like I've just hit the Jackpot as far as entertainment goes. Thats a dream that if ever became a reality would not only blow my mind but everyone else's mind. :)
