Antiques Road Show

Yesterday we visited Panjiayuan antiques market, where there are many vendors of, erm, "antiques". Paintings to furniture to pottery can all be got here, though I doubt if nay of them are older than a few months! It's a very interesting place, though sadly only open at the weekend. We did this en-route to seeing Melissa's dad, who is in beijing for a week on a visit, and who was staying very nearby. even though Panjiayuan is rich in antiques, it's not so rich in restaurants, so we hopped in a taxi and drove half the city to No-name restaurant in the Hutong near Houhai. No-name again served up a delicious Yunnanese style meal for us, and everyone was very happy with it.

Today though is homework day. No fun! :(
