WorldFair Burgers in China

September 24, 2010

Whilst in Shanghai for the World Fair Nik and I went out for a walk near Nanjing Road. Got tired and decided to splurge on a good hamburger and went into the hotel next to Le Meridien: One bio-dynamic burger cost $25 so we decided to split a burger and small bottle of water for $10, half glass each.

Our Chinese waiter Jim noticed we were cheap and brought us an extra basket of delicious bread then at end of meal offered Nik free access to the ice cream bar. What a nice guy. Sometimes it’s okay to be on a tight budget. We thought the prices inside the World Fair complex (see photo with Niki) were high…

Etiquette Reminder

September 24, 2010

Good signs at the 2010 Shanghai World Fair advising the public of the rules and regulations. I like that “no challenging” and meanwhile can I share your drink and food? Polite language shouldn’t be a problem but “no noising”. If you’re in China forget it. It’s loud everywhere and if not someone’s cell phone will ring and they’ll be yelling into it soon enough.

Lassen Volcanic NP – best kept secret

September 15, 2010

Just came out of Lassen Volcanic National Park. Camping for a week with four kids and wife testing not only outdoor equipment but our sanity! One of America’s best kept secrets, the park not the alleged sanity. Nikolas 10, Antoni 5 all smiles. Was it the fresh air or the ice cream?
