Christmas In Beijing III

Christmas singers at Sanlitun

OK. There isn't a lot about Christmas in Beijing here other than this picture. This is of some singers at an outdoor shopping mall as Sanlitun.

There is a video at the bottom of the post of them singing.











Dried fish, goose and hogs head at Walmart in Beijing

I hope some of our friends in Newburgh will forward this to Larry Marschel. This in the deli department of the WalMart down the street. I can see some dried fish on the far end, ducks or geese in the middle and I'm pretty sure that is a hog's head on the right side.






Here is Margot trying to figure out what the round things are.

Oh, the Christmas connection? We went shopping on Christmas Eve.













She seems to have figured it out in this picture. I'm not sure if she is correct or not.
Mini Cooper display at Sanlitun




On Christmas Day we went shopping for some accessories for the electronic gifts we received. We stumbled into this Mini Cooper display.
Chandelier at Sinopec Headquarters



Didn't know where else to put this picture. The week before Christmas I had a series of meetings at the Sinopec headquarters in Beijing. This is the lobby from the sixth floor. The chandelier caused a huge controversy a couple of years ago when a rumor was going around that it cost 12 million yuan or about $2,000,000. The citizens were upset that they were getting gouged on gas prices and the largest oil company in China was 'wasting' so much money on frivolities. Sinopec reported that it only cost 1.6 million yuan or about $250,000.  Chandelier
