Photo Friday: No Sleep To China

May 15, 2015
tags: , ,

Yeah. I can’t even believe it. A week from Monday I’m leaving for Beijing. There is so much to do in between now and then it’s crazy. Hopefully the people at my hotel will be helpful in pointing me in the direction of great duck.

I have to say it feels completely irresponsible to make a big trip like this without having any idea what I’m going to do once I’m there. But it will be an adventure. And hey, I still have a week to figure it out.

Since I have neither queued up any posts in advance of my departure or lined up any guest posters for the week, it looks like the FLB will be taking its first short planned hiatus in over five years.

Speaking of having far too much to do, today all you get is pictures of food. I’m not even going to tell you what they are. You’re just going to have to guess. But I tell you what. The first person who guesses them all correctly will win a prize.

Ready, set, go.

    Super up close photos render most foods fecal/vomit-esque. Just my unwelcome 2-cents.

    2 and 3) Special burger tasting at McDonald’s
    4) Pizza from Civtello’s
    5) Not sure, guessing some dish from Hong Kong bakery
    6) Unsure, guessing something from Parivar
