On my way home – Trashy in China, Part 12

As I’m packing away my things before the long trip home, I thought I’d share a few final reflections.

The sheer magnitude of this city continues to amaze me. Everything is so over the top that the top has been hidden by the smog a-way above. From the buildings that vary widely from style to style, to uber-aggressive hawkers at the markets, to the 75 pages menus  in the restaurants, Beijing doesn’t do anything half-way.

I am sad to leave but looking forward to seeing my family, breathing clean air and sleeping in my own bed – though concerning the latter, there may be some issues with the whole sleep thing.

I’ll post again during my layover in Vancouver if I’m bored.
