Hello Bingjiakou Hutong!!!

So i moved to a new apartment. i have chinese roomate now. i basically have two roomates now because her boyfriend is there all the time. he doesnt work and i haven't seen him go to school yet either so he is there when i go to bed, there when i wake up. he grew up around the corner from there so he knows everything about the area. he still lives around the corner, except he lives at my house basically now. this place is way better than the place i was going to live in. we each pay about $260 a month. it is 1 stop away from the gulou subway station (drumtower) so its in an older part of beijing, not hutong style but still old and better than living in the business district. i've been eating tons of street food

i finally rode in one of those pedicab things. i didn not die or have my legs amputated

these hotdogs were not bad. not like american hot dogs though. they used egg bread buns which were a good improvement.

Zizzo is my roomates boyfriends name. he loves these donkey meat things. and they did'nt taste too bad. me and bob probably ate this and didnt know it before or other kinds of mystery meat.

i finally played ping pong for the first time in china. its been 5 months! i sat down for a break and saw this dog having sex with this guys leg while he just sat there gazing off in the opposite direction totally letting his dog do it. this went on for a while. probably after i left too. he was not telling it to stop, he just lounged there letting it happen.

riding the bus sucks bad

finding and moving to a new apartment is pretty exhausting. this wasn't as bad as finding one in New York though. i did have to pay 4 months rent in advance, it was only $1000 dollars but i dont know how normal chinese people can afford to do this.
