Post-Olympics and Toufu
Well, it’s Monday - the day after the Closing Ceremony of the Beijing Olympics. Things around the city seem to be pretty much the same - the car ban is still in effect and they still x-ray bags in the subway… I imagine these measures, and many more, will remain until at least the end of the Paralympic Games in September. The question I have now, is whether our restaurant on the Siemens campus here has green beans (bian dou) and tofu (doufu). During the Olympics, these two items (and maybe more, I don’t know) were not available “due to the Olympics”. Don’t ask me where the logic is here… I’ll check during lunch today if I can get some toufu. Let’s see if they try giving me the excuse “because of the Olympics” again - I’ll shoot back last night it ended. So where’s the toufu? BTW, I am a bit late, we saw some more events since the baseball photos I uploaded last week. On Friday, we went to an Athletics event in the “birds nest” and Sunday, we went to the Men’s Volleyball final! That was an exciting match! Will upload photos in due time.
