I made it safely to Beijing. I wandered down to the train station and thought about going somewhere. Instead, I went to the mall that I saw from the station.

I often passed by Heidi’s Pies while growing up but I went there for the second or third time ever today. Happy my friend suggested we meet there. I had already ate at Santa Ramen across the street so I just had pie. My friend ordered pancakes. Next time, I’ll order breakfast, too.
Found this nice cafe around the corner from the theater. Can’t go wrong with free wifi and chicken rice. I’ll be back.
