"beijing" Discussed on Worldly
"Yes if you're a fan of yellow tail wine. I have bad news for you. if you're living in china guests and so they go like this is just been a larger fight happening And this afghanistan worth like if you're china and you've been having this back and forth with australia. Well this report gives you a lot of ammunition right which takes me back to the initial of what does the answer. Troll's gonna troll a troll. Found something on which to hit australia and did And the australian government fought back saying like. Hey you shouldn't have said that you should apologize. Yeah i think to another thing maybe keep in mind. Is that austrailia. Some of their you know researchers there have been at the forefront of kind of uncovering Some of the agreed human rights violations in xinjiang against the workers. And you know. Australia has been out front in terms of criticizing the Treatment of the week in that region. And so this war crimes report gives china an opportunity to kind of draw a false equivalents and to deflect from their own misdeeds. i suppose and one thing. We tend to know about chinese propaganda. It's as much for a lot of outsiders Think it seems really clumsy and bad. And that's because it is. But sometimes the audiences as much for the internal chinese audience or chinese people living abroad and so that's a really important strategy there as well. Yeah i think so. That's like a really important issue. I kind of want to drill down on here. Is this is false equivalency or you know basically i i think alex is put it in your piece. And it's a bit rich that china would be you calling out another country for human rights violations to be clear like this is the allegations of what these special forces soldiers did in afghanistan or really horrific and there was another report guardian. Australia came out with this week. Showing this really gruesome photo of australian soldiers drinking a an a military bar in afghanistan drinking beer out of the prosthetic leg of dead taliban soldier which is just gruesome and horrifying and there are several photos of like posing within dancing and laughing and that wasn't chinese propaganda right like that wasn't a doctor. Dementia this real photo. So even though the chinese tweet was fake and was this computer generated image. The crimes that they talk about that they were kind of pointing to alleged crimes. These people haven't faced a court of law yet. I believe but they're they're real incidents that that they're referring to but at the same time like it's china and they're literally as you alluded to gen locking up thousands of muslims in literal concentration camps And that's just one of the human rights abuses that china engages in among many. So you know. I think it's really interesting that china decided to use this as like a cudgel against the west. But it definitely fits this kind of model of like you guys do worse than we. You know how dare you you know what what gives you the right. You're just as bad all of that and it kind. If you know in some ways they have a point in the sense that like. You're not innocent australia. You're not innocent western countries. You do these things to We were talking about this before the show. I would probably say you know for me like yes. They have a point. But i think there's also the fact that lake this report exists. The australian government like commissioned this like four year long inquiry into what australian soldiers did in afghanistan and publish these results and publish this whole report. And so like the fact that like you wouldn't have that in china right. You're not gonna have the beijing government year long inquiry into what they're doing in john john right right. They're actively hiding it lying about it. So i will say at least at least democracies got that going. Forward it you know. I guess that's me. Yeah i would agree. And i would also say to that you know this gives china. We know that china is has you know wants to have a bigger global presence right and is trying to build relationships and places like latin america and africa and we know that you know western alliances you know have you know with the us austrailia part of the if they can highlight these atrocities and these you know the problematic behavior of you know the western countries than it gives china sort of. I don't know we're not as bad basically because we weren't involved in all of these wars and i don't know again giving china's human rights record which is a grievous from xinjiang and the week there as you mentioned jam but also in hong kong and tibet and everywhere else. It's not really a case holds water. But it's certainly a case that china will try to make to the world. I think you know we're not as bad as these guys that have been. You know pillaging your country for twenty years type thing. Yeah it's just. There's a long standing kind of tactic that we've seen of communist regimes. I mean you can see this going back to the cold war with the soviet union. You know always trying to kind of push this line that they're the the ones who are you providing liberty and protection and all of this and that you know it's the west that's trying to overturn regimes and committing war crimes. Which again to be fair. Those things happen right but they do this while at the same time completely obfuscating the fact that they are doing also horrendous things to their own people and to people where you know in in regions where they're operating and so it's kind of a standing playbook of course again all countries you this to some degree right. We also try to point out crimes and human rights violations of other countries while not acknowledging our own so that that's fairly standard. But i think again going back to the fact that this report exists right like china is still blocking like images of tiananmen square to this day on the internet and like not teaching. Its own citizens about what happened there and trying to crack down on democracy in hong kong and all of that so yeah but i guess i just want to go back to the issue at hand here because like let's be clear about why relations with china and australia. Getting bad right. It is that china is is is like creating artificial islands in the south china sea. It is trying to you. Know have many many intelligence agencies perceive using its telecommunications giants to spy on on foreign countries and it is refusing to allow inspectors and a real sort of reckoning as to what happened in the early days of the coronavirus. Like these are bad. Things that china's do and australia for being one of the regional leaders is calling china on it and all these cases and for that you have. China sent starting a trade war with australia And like hitting them on on this war report which again australian elites service scorn for this and in the leaders et it. But that's why this is and on and it's backfiring because you in as it is back on trailing sense because now we're talking about their war crimes report that no one knew until now ish But it is backfiring on china. Because you're making it worse that year because they're making like the us for example..

Allen might. Be Anywhere everywhere at the moment still basking in. Fulham. Blow. The Beijing Olympics of the first Olympics I watched extensively I vividly remember be home doing what she did in. Athens. But for sort of wall-to-wall coverage, it was Beijing for me and I just remember the venues being really cool. The bird's nest, the aquatic center looking futuristic and yeah I just lapped it up. Do. You remember the dramas at the opening ceremony. That's kind of a rule about a conic moments matt. I think that is the conic moment isn't it from Beijing? Yeah well, I would say you same bolt is the I call. Of this the sport yes I'm going. Non You talked about venues and several. Yes opening ceremony iconic moment. Yeah. They also remember all the re. There were lots of theories about the pollution in Beijing and that being there's always some sort of controversy drama in the lead-up. Olympic. Some sort of reason that's being peddled in the media may be completely legit often is about why the Olympics is going to be a massive massive failure. In Rio none of us were ready. We didn't get that with London twenty twelve here. I'm sure in other countries they did everybody was sort of united in positively about the Olympics but in Beijing was the pollution because the the factory I mean everywhere in China in factories in urban areas in China and they were well first they relocated. I know from personal experience, they relocated a lot of the most polluting factories from Beijing to other parts of the country in particular to Ching de. meaning that on my visits to Chengdu roundabout that time it felt like my throat was burning every time I stepped outside because the pollution in the smoke was so bad. In fact, the final of the champions tour event. that. I attended in D. had to be halted because nobody could see the ball. But In Beijing I mean the police was was far less bad than fit but they hid seeded the clouds in order to make it rain in the lead up to the Olympics to clear the air they were controlling the weather. Can come here and do that. Yeah. No, I remember thinking what if it's that easy to make it not reign. Why we faffing around with you know? All the time. Yeah. We can control the weather. So the Truman show style but forty six years of drizzle. Could do anything about it. Jim that suddenly everybody. Acted like they understood the expression seeding the clouds the I'm doing it now. That I remember it now that you said it but I am still asking the question as to why I don't have a remote control on my desk allows me to do it right now because it's overcast and Oracle.

"beijing" Discussed on The Lawfare Podcast
"We talked about the Chinese economy and how it is recovering and suffering. It's the law fair. Podcast April Twenty Eighth Sophia Yan reports from quarantine in Beijing Sophia. Start by telling us where you are and why well. I've just come back to Beijing. I'm under quarantine in my house and it's because I recently traveled to and from John which is the ground zero at the corner virus outbreak You'll remember that's where the first cases emerged late last year. And because China it's still grappling with this pandemic a lot of measures now including you've quarantine restrictions are still here in place to make sure that a second wave is prevented at least the Bacon Tracking that are coming back so a lot of people in the United States. Who were under lockdown here? You say I'm under quarantine in Beijing. And they think oh I'm under quarantine in Washington or I'm under quarantine in in New York but when you say quarantine you mean something a little bit different from what we mean here when we say it. So what does quarantine in Beijing involve run? Pretty fortunate I think to build a quarantine in my house. A lot of people who live with others if you've got family or housemates than you have to quarantine at a government facility. They're usually hotels so for me. I I literally cannot leave my house. I can't go out to take out the trash. I can't go to get packages. There brought to my door by neighborhood. Committee Enabled Party Committee that oversees my particular residential complex. And there's even a alarm at my door so every time I opened my door it pains this woman. Who's in charge of my building? Just my building in my compound so she knows exactly when the door opens and closes and I know because on my first night I opened the door to put out my trash so once the day they come by to take my rubbish and take my recycling so I was putting out the night before and the moment I did it. I close the door and a few seconds later. This woman who's in charge of my building messages me. She's a did you open your door. I said well yes I had to put out the trash so since then every time I do need to open my door for the trash or to get grocery delivery or things like that I always messenger to be like. I'm already my door because they take it very seriously. It makes sense. There's this concern that a second wave of infections which have started to come might mean the disease spreads even more widely Time around so be very very careful. You are in your apartment and you said. Most people are quarantined at government facilities. What does the government facility quarantine involved like if you were if you had family members living with you and you were required to go to one of these hotels? How is that different from home? Quarantine other than that. You don't have your piano. Rolly restrictions are largely the same. They also can't leave and so most of US facilities are hotels that have been re purposed for that use and so these people who are in that situation might colleagues and friends have gone through that kind of quarantine They also can't leave their hotel rooms and so for all of us no matter where you are at home or in one of these hotels use this according to you facility. A few times a day you have to report your temperature. And there's a certain people assigned to your case so doctors in a kind of like a representative. Who's taking care of you and just making sure that you do do that. Full fourteen days so that that person for me is this woman. I mentioned before who knows every time I opened my door. And so I'm nearing the end of this fourteen day period and I have to undergo a second nucleic acid test to determine whether or not I have the virus the first one I did back in Wuhan and that was a requirement for me to leave the city so I was there Right before the lockdowns officially lifted and through that period after the lockdown sorta to eased in early April and even after the lockdowns came out on there was a restriction of how many people could come back to Beijing so it was a thousand people a day and there was a lottery system to get a train ticket to return and so to even get in the lottery system. You had to show a clean bill of health and go through a virus test so I had to go to a hospital to show that I wasn't positive With those results than I could apply for this train ticket lottery with that I could finally come back to Beijing and from there. I was just escorted to different points to take personal details register my temperature and all of this. I was escorted all the way to my door. So it's this whole process that everyone had to go through in this quarantine in Beijing. Fourteen days it started to extend it. There's an extra seven day in some parts of China it's fourteen days in a government facility plus another fourteen at home depending where you are because again they're trying to battle the second wave and this applies for both domestic travel and international travel. So if you if you fly to China now you are at the airport removed and put in a quarantine hotel right. Yeah right now. The borders closed to foreigners who have eased as To China can't come in so if you were coming back you would have to.

"We caught up within when he had just returned in the UK. Here's what he says. Yes I've arrived in the UK. It was shockingly easy. I thought a guards regiment might forcibly take our temperature or at least ask her contact information in case someone had to track down those who had contact with an infected person but nothing of the sort happened. I arrived when through an automated passport control and was in a car in a few minutes. Now that's a little bit upsetting if that's you travel from China to the UK right now that may have consequences for the rest of the world. Ian However is a good citizen and a good sport. He's now in the empty wing of his relatives country home south of London. He's going for long walks through the English countryside while avoiding pubs swimming pools and any other place where people congregate. It's nice work if you can get it. We'll be back with this week's playback in just a moment if you're listening to our show you're probably someone who cares about the biggest issues shaping society today. There's another podcast. We think you should check out intelligence squared. Us America's leading debate series. They bring together. Influential thinkers like Deepak. Chopra Arianna Huffington David Miller band and even yours truly. I admit debating Alan Dershowitz to evidence based debates on contentious topics like free-trade healthcare reform and spirituality. It's not about soundbites pundits. It's more a thoughtful. Spirited competition of ideas find intelligence squared. Us wherever you get your podcasts. And now our playback. That's the sound of clapping in Doha. The capital of Uttar where representative of the US government and a representative of the Afghan Taliban signed a peace agreement. This weekend the clapping notwithstanding this is an agreement that's already facing very significant challenges and those challenges are only going to get greater to understand why you have to begin with a painful fact about the nearly twenty year. Us engagement in Afghanistan by any ordinary military standard. It ultimately looks like a defeat. It didn't start that way. When the United States I came into Afghanistan it very effectively and very rapidly made the Taliban leave the country and that after all was the initial reason for the invasion. The idea was number one. Get rid of the Taliban number to catch as many members of al-Qaeda as it's possible to get our hands on the trouble was that happened almost too quickly and then gradually imperceptibly over time the US mission in Afghanistan challenged. Ultimately the argument was that the United States should make an effort of some kind to produce some kind of stable functioning democratic government in Afghanistan and yet the government that presently exists in the country is very very loosely democratic and only stable in the loosest sense of the word in fact most observers believe that should the United States actually withdraw its troops from Afghanistan as it has promised eventually to do in this agreement that government would have a great deal of trouble withstanding a serious attack from the Taliban now in order to get there the so-called agreement between the United States and the Taliban an agreement which notably does not yet include Afghanistan as party says that the Taliban are supposed to negotiate a peace with the Afghan government and put down their arms from there were supposed to move on to an eventual US withdrawal of all of its troops but from the standpoint of the Taliban. They don't have any really strong reason to put down their arms if it would require them to form a compromise with the current government that would not be to the Taliban's liking the reason for that is that once the United States has said publicly that intends to leave Afghanistan. It's leverage to force the Taliban to do anything other than whatever it wants is reduced very drastically after all all along in this war. The only thing the United States has ever been able to do when it wanted the Toubon to listen to. It was to continue to fight the Taliban. That's why within a few days of the initial agreement. The Taliban demanded that if the Afghan government wanted to negotiate with it the Afghan would have to free five thousand Taliban prisoners for their part. The Afghan government is terrified about the possibility of an actual use withdrawal so it's in the Afghan government's interest to delay that as long as possible. Consequently the Afghan simply said we're not handing over the five thousand Taliban prisoners which means that at least as of right now the Taliban on the one hand and the government of Afghanistan on the other hand are not even on speaking terms technically without an agreement between them the United States cannot withdraw and therefore the agreement between the United States and the Taliban might turn out to be more symbolic than actual nevertheless disagreement probably will have a major long term consequence and that long term consequence is primarily in the US domestic context. Donald Trump in the run up to a reelection seems fully prepared to do what none of his predecessors were willing to do and essentially admit defeat in Afghanistan by agreeing to do a deal with the Taliban. Barack Obama was not prepared to do that even in a second term when he himself was not running for re election. George W Bush wasn't prepared to do it in either of his terms as president. Both of them ended up owning the American involvement in Afghanistan and the history books will so record. Donald Trump on the other hand. Despite to a great extent continuing the Obama Administration's policies in the first part of his term has actually now signaled a willingness to bite the bullet to say that the United States actually must get out and trump will now carry the historical legacy of the willingness to withdraw. Even if the United States doesn't withdraw in either of his potentially two terms in office. I hate to say it. But that's actually a major gift that Donald Trump is making to the United States and also to a future president any future president. And it's no secret that my view is that it would be better for to be anyone other than Donald Trump in two thousand twenty will be able to continue the trump policy of saying that the United States has signed to deal and is prepared to leave the country that will be a tremendous advantage because it will mean that president will not have to say we agreed to lose the war on my watch there is however a final. Coda as they're almost always know. Us President is going to want to preside over scenes in Kabul that are reminiscent of the famous scenes of the US withdrawal from Saigon in nineteen. Seventy five no one will want to be present in the United States with helicopters flying out with the last. Us personnel and tens or hundreds or thousands or tens of thousands of Afghans begging to be on those helicopters and yet that scenario is entirely possible if the US government ultimately withdraws troops and if the Taliban move on the city in a serious military way the agreement does give. Donald trump the flexibility. To say that under those circumstances but the Taliban army heading to Kabul that the United Sates would not withdraw but it seems entirely possible the Donald Trump would be willing to do so and to bear even that price a remarkable consequence of trump's confidence that his base will support him almost no matter what his apparent belief that he cannot be made to look weak on foreign policy no matter what. His actual policies are and trump's conviction probably accurate than most Americans even if they would feel bad in the short term at such a painful public portrayal of the Afghan people are ultimately tired of this war. The upshot of all of this is that the United States will at some point find itself with its troops out of Afghanistan and the consequences for the Afghans are likely to be disastrous. The Taliban in this peace deal did not say that. They had embraced democracy. Because they haven't they did not say that they now support the education of girls and young women because they don't they did not commit themselves in this agreement to any future course of action other than agreeing to talk to the Afghan government. Something which is already not happening. Ultimately historians will look back at the legacy of the American presence in Afghanistan and wonder just how the United States could have gotten itself wrapped up in a nearly twenty year war. Why they will ask? Didn't the United States defeat the Taliban catch Osama Bin and then turn back to the Taliban and say you know what if you want to go back to Afghanistan? There's nothing we can do about it and we're not going to try and stop you. Real politique will not answer the historians question to make sense of how the United States experienced the ultimate mission creep in Afghanistan. We'll have to look back to the context of post September eleventh to the feeling in the Bush administration that the goal of the United States should not simply be to try to take steps against those who perpetrated the nine eleven attacks but to bring about generational transformations in the countries of the Muslim world. So that such attacks would never happen again. Those transformations turned out to be well beyond the power of the United States and probably beyond the power of any one country. In retrospect it all seems so painfully obvious at the time a derangement syndrome far greater than that of trump derangement grip us. All myself included. We wanted more because we the United States thought that the trauma we had suffered was unmatched unmatched trauma was supposed to lead to unmatched realization of new plans for a democratic Muslim world. In the end the only people who can make democracy is majority Muslim countries are the people who live in those countries and the American effort to create democracies by the sword is definitively a historical failure.

And some people are thinking that you don't do that in big cities. You don't walk by yourself in the middle of the night in places where there and a lot of people. But Beijing has a very safe city. So absolutely like probably something we should mention. Yeah. Like the rest of China. Yeah. Yeah. Totally safe. Excellent. One thing that makes you laugh and say only in Beijing. I was thinking about this. Although it's not technically unle- in Beijing, you'll sit elsewhere in China bit.

This might appeal to someone so bio main going, Debbie, you want say that all you see Bela vay elsewhere in restaurants, but you want say scope, so that's the place to go for that. If you want to put stuff online and impress people with your eating scorpion. The supplies. Do. I don't feel the need for that. But okay. Anything else you want to talk about in terms of food before we get to some of our wrap up questions. We have to wrap it up or turn this into a two part episode. It's it's it's one of the other at this point. It's to solid just saying jump on play timeout. Beijing time around the world old that spacing that Beijing. They have they griped solstice of Chinese food. You might think it's all expats. But no, it's those everything quite summary of local foods so use that as a resource special and full disclosure. I've been doing work for time over the last year. But I did not encourage Daniel to say this, okay? So it's really quite quite reference. I use it all the time. And then you mentioned apps, you mentioned DD just listening to the Shanghai podcasts. I didn't he mentioned VPN if you come to China, and if you've got your local scene cod from home, and you've got a good running plan. That's fine. You'll be able to access oil sides jewel. But if you're getting a local coddle using WI fi you want gotta get things like what sack or you will our. Yeah. That could be a surprise to people. So definitely install a VPN before you come Google maps will work with VPN, but it want without. Oh, I didn't know that. Okay. Apple maps works. Well, and this functioning they that you can tap go down and go opening I at which will open everything in a few found appointed love in the address and the naming Chinese.

And why do I think that comes from the name of one of your sibling? That's true. That's that's younger, brother. It is. Okay. I wasn't making that up. No good memory could memory, and then one the other place that you mentioned at the beginning that you have to need till on was seven ninety eight art district. Yes. This is a bit out kind of between the main city and. The airport. It's an old industrial cock that has been rapist. With galleries and studios is a bunch of cafes and Stolz popped up there as quite nice area to walk around. If you're into that stuff. It might not be everyone's Cup of tea. But yes was shaking out. They have touring shows from international artists as well. Excellent. And you mentioned airport. Beijing is opening a new airport the world's largest next year. Yeah. Into the south of the city. Okay. So the current one is northeast of the city am I remembering that correctly. That's correct. So yeah. The other one Erico dossier will be open apparently from next year twenty nineteen. So that's gonna be a big deal, which is good. Because Beijing port is very busy. You can have delays coming in and out. Yeah. So looking forward to that. Okay. It might also then lead to more traffic, which could lead to fair drop. So that'd be something. I would watch for if you're interested in going to Beijing is there might there may not be. But there might be some good deals next year. Excellent. Well, we need to probably start wrapping this up. You're standing in the prettiest spot in Beijing where he is standing. What are you looking at? This is what I wanted to mention something to do which people don't think about is governor to around the Forbidden City premature. So the moat at night.

Coke bottles. His reusable bottles, you'll see throughout these areas, which is very cool old. Beijing thing that you'll see about two that's kind of street food. That's beijing. You know, benching food's not that well known outside Beijing, you don't find it Beijing restaurant apart from taking doc thought of Beijing. So. When we talk about Beijing food, you really going to have those little snacks for fun. And then trying to enjoy all the cuisine around China a few things that popular in Beijing that have come from elsewhere Jennings, which like a big crepe on a hot plate with an egg cracked on a bit of meat source of lettuce and kind of crispy wafer thing wrapped up into like a kebab and you'll see those about also one of the things that incurred that got the message across to me that we were talking about different cuisine up here in the north than I think of with Chinese food is as you're going out, for instance, to Tanu is going through the countryside. You're going past fields and and their cornfields. They're not ricefields. You've got corn and wheat and things like that in this part of China. It's not what I think of as Chinese food. So clearly, my thought process is just too limited. Well, that's a good point. And that reminds me to mention that I think the US is the same as Australia in out big Chinese population wave south. Yeah. I'm going down today. Both the Cantonese cuisine, which is can be sweet, it's not spicy, generally. And that's very different to most of the rest of China which uses spice, and so in the south you've got rice field solo rice based dishes in the north. You've got wait. So you get more noodles and things like that breads. So that's a distinction in general north-and-south differently. Check out things like six. John you've probably heard I think Sichuan cuisines become over. That's my favorite cuisine. So yeah, that's a well known one outside of Chinatown. Also who then is become popular recently. I really like who food unanimous mostly stink to podcast on Unani the other day. That's you can also fund law. Those restaurants in Beijing Shanxi noodles. So where the terra cotta warriors that slime. Lanzhou beef noodles. So Nuro men just means base noodles. Okay. Can find those other things like char C H U A N A R is pronounced char really popular. Beijing thing it's not from Beijing. It's more of a northwest and a Muslim area food. Okay. Little shish kebabs of mate and vegetables, the grilled or cooked in a hop pod with spices and whatnot got it. So which would find in CNN further west fence ri- also very popular in if you walking around, and you wanna find char- you look out the Chinese symbol looks like the number eighty eight kind of stretched out ill and guided with a line straight through the center across an intern up on it saw at ninety degrees. As far you see? You see? Sure if he's trying to trying to picture that Eighty-eight line through the middle turned up. Okay. All right. So you see neon red neon signs in that character. And you see that the place that means to our if I got what you're saying. I put a line down the middle. And then I have two horizontal rectangles one above the other like the symbol for China, except with another bucks. That's right. Okay. That's right. Exactly. Right. Like like Jong the character for middle. We're trying to see the place. Okay. And when you think about it. That's exactly what the looks like it's a spike. It's a skew author. Food. Okay..

"What foreigners liked to have as far? Okay. That was big in the ninety s and the still a Streep that remains there. You can see it just don't me to bay loop. So that was like the seed of this area. And then from that enormous big through mole complexes in department stores and hotels sprung up around it and specically now the main place to go and eat and go out in Beijing. It's worth going to I really think in terms of food. You might think. Okay. I should go to the old part of the city and eight local food. But to be honest, you get a little bit of variety in a place like Sunday. Tune because prices like tycoon Li which is a big shopping area Anneli patio, top win center, a few of the areas around the they full of restaurants basements of departments of malls. And things like that. And around you can get a big variety. They from all over China. In a very small spice fessed up does exist. Elsewhere in Beijing for shoal, but it's kind of spread out it'd be a restaurant here in a restaurant there, and you have to go on a big trick hitter. Mold. So Tiffany, keep that in mind because that's not something people think about because I think okay. The anytime in areas just old west and food and BAAs, but no it's good really great Chinese food as well. And are there recommendations for what or where we should eat while we're in Beijing differently? So the number one thing obvious thing is Beijing duck. There are a couple of big prime is formally known as Peking, duck, just like Jesus for my noticed Peking. Okay. Yeah. That's exactly right. The main chains that famous and and still good quality twin Judah with a Q Q U A N G U D E and Dong towards the a deal in g they've got locations throughout Beijing. And if you have. A map apt to jump on there and you'll you'll find a bunch of them atop from picking duck Beijing duck. The other local thing would be a hot caught similar to Sichuan hotpot if you've had that before but not spicy. And it seemed like a old brass conical type that was built to have Kohl's hating the soup, which then dunk in your roommate and vegetables, and then take it out and ate it with a dipping sauce. That's Beijing thing you to see that a whole lot. You'll see it in Chen men or replace school who goes walking straight, which is a good place for Beijing snacks in Beijing food, and we'll put links to all these places in the show notes for those of you who are trying to figure out who what Daniel is talking about. Another little really Beijing snack is cow stomach just boiled steamed on the show, which yum. We the sesame seeds soles. So you'll see that in those layers. You weren't really seeing outside of the tourist areas so much you'll also spot keep an eye out for Kandy whole phone fruits to toffee apples, but whole phone. You also see to this more of a street route at this point. I'm looking for this in a vendor. Yeah, you'll see them display skew is on the street or in little shops. He should be on a spot them as you will like pot set yogurt so walking around. Place like Chen men who goes Belen, Trump tau non-mogul Shung ho high..

"I don't even know where we went because we were with a friend who lives in Beijing. And he took us out to an area that is mostly restaurants around a lake with a lot of people singing American folksongs of the things like that. I don't know where we were. So that that would have been ho high and Chen. Hi, okay. Which is not not far from the German Bill. Tell got it. Okay. We were further. And then I thought so you mentioned the old part of the city is surrounded by the subway line, number two. And I think you sent me a map that says that whole areas about three and a little bit mile square. That's right. Three point three no south in about full east-west. So when I signed the old city, it's not like if you just get off one of those subway lines, and you will you'll be in beautiful Al`thood tones a lot of it has been developed, and you could in a place that looks exactly like outside of that area. If you're looking for those all the positive we'll be within that area. So something that's a bit about. About the layout. I feel like Shanghai. You get a bit of sense of way. You also you can be in the French concession, you feel like, okay? This is a neighborhood could live a life within these blocks. It's a lot like New York Manhattan, you can be in these enormous metropolis. But if you go to Greenwich Village, you'll so high will alphabet city or something like kayak and feel the sense of place mary-anne, and I can people leave they lives within a few blocks in Beijing. It can be a bit disorientating because you've got that old part of the CD which is still quite lodge. But it spread out long that north south axis, and you can kind of be confused way. You are even if the hitting all the science can disorientate people always differently disarmed tided for a long time coming in. So that's why I really recommend just trying to walk the length of that all the part of the city, for example from Lama temple through to the Trump and Bill Talla down past of highway. You are. Around the little like down to Jingsheng pock round, the Forbidden City, Tiananmen Shimin. That's solid walk. You know, think it's six seven miles or something like that. But you really see those areas in the context of each other. And I think that's really worthwhile. No that sounds good. So I'm going to jump out of the CD for moment to the great wool. Beijing Fendt the grind bowl, as we know goes, many, thousands of miles but Beijing a fantastic place to see because quite close to the city the area closest is around an hour and a half strive depending on the traffic that would be Mutianyu. Which is beautifully restored has if you not into hiking up a hill and Scott chafe like scaly thing to Bogan down. So it's quite accessible. I took to the bog down. My wife was leery. And so she did not because she was a free in China that they might have less safety concerns. Although I thought it was very well monitored for speed and things. And she was tired for days afterward from doing the walk up in the walk down. The so do the toboggan it's touristy, but it's fun. And it's it's a noble thing. You don't expect to say that on the grateful just looking up online. You know, what people were saying about to go on the great wall and bottling is the very famous site way that's closer than Mouton. You isn't. It's actually further why it's both west, okay. And president Nixon visited their President Reagan. So what he's famous I think it was probably one of the most years to be promptly restored. And it's quite beautiful. I've never been there. I've only been to mute in you that people talk about on mutineers, so less crowded list. Touristy? I don't think that Severi good way. If you go with that impression you'll be disappointed because there's a lot of people. Right. So relative, right? Well, the other thing I would want people to know is we talk about the great wall. And that. Particular spot. There's a lot of hills in some places the great staircase of China. And so just know this is going to be something that is going to put some some stress on your knees and not something that you're gonna get a along distance..

"You've got the whole of the people the national museum really worth going to very great collection. Especially I think it's the basement on the bottom floor has chronologically ordered paces back through China's history and really well done the other pieces exhibitions overly like like the book. Sculptures in from different periods. Especially the song dynasty has really distinctive style. Beautiful and ceramic pint ceramics finest and look these paces over thousand years old two thousand years old and the simplicity, but the beauty of them. I just find coaches, I really love that that stuff. So definitely check out national museum. If you only do one busy him, that's the one for sure. Before we leave them at square now. When I was there there were great big huge video screens in the middle of the square showing scenes of China. I have no idea if that is something that happens normally, or if that was just there when I was there one time of the day was that I was there right around Golden Week. I'll kinda yet that would be the reason. So around the big my holiday, so the Chinese New Year, which depending on the lunar calendar can be from late January to need Fabian. They'll have different things displayed sculptures of things big screens. Like you mentioned toss in October. We had the national whole day in the mid autumn festival week. And we had like a big enormous tape structure built out of flowers. Which was cool and a big portrait of Sonia sin. Okay. The foam of prison of Republic of China. So yeah, different things will pop up there depending on the holidays in it's a place where all of China kind of has to visit sometime in your life. And you feel that when spend most of my time in Beijing not in that area. And when I go to these kind of areas, I feel like I'm meeting the rest of China, you know, the people a different 'cause they not Beijing is not living and working Beijing interest, and you really feel like you sampling meeting people from China. So it's kind of like a pilgrimage in some way. So yeah, you'll get that sense. Relative to that thinking of the big holidays that you just mentioned is that a good time to go to Beijing because everybody leaves the city or is that not a good time because everybody else were in the country uses that as a chance to come visit patient. That's. That's right. So you had people do leave. Everyone goes back to the hometown exactly riot. This big flow the other way and all those big science will be packed. Okay. I know it's a difficult time to get trained tickets and those sort of things because everybody's in motion. That's right. So yeah, you you could still make it work. If you plan ahead, but yeah, it's probably been to come outside those times avoid super crowds in of make travel around China easier. Excellent. Will you were heading south from Tiananmen Square when I stopped you. Yup. So we're still in the same area and old everywhere. We've talked about is as Lee walkable. So. So although it's it's very broad area. And it's all flat. It's all quite open. Ilise will crannies area. So immediately to the south of ten squares. Applies code chandon on this too. Big gates that Jen young guy will Shinmun sorry. Some men when he done that means gate so chin gate, Kenema, Geno. T N Kate the chin men. Represented the end will the boundary southern boundary of the old in a city Beijing as you say now all the old stuff is within. What was the old in a city and the inner city was boarded by city wool? The city bowl is like you can still see then Jing heard what cost a mentioning last year.

Astronomers that came and quoted by the ching dynasty and whatnot. That's what seeing if you especially if you don't get out to the bowl. That's an lost of remnant to see this.

"When I landed you couldn't see one end of the airport from the other. Although several of the days that I was there. I didn't notice it as much but one day we flew in. I was one of those days, but that he's very unfortunate. And that it can happen. Absolutely true. So why should people come to Beijing of three main reasons, I feel the first one is history. So every way a lot of places have great history. But I think Beijing is special especially in China because if we compare it to Shanghai Shanghai has great history can see the French concessions and whatnot. But Beijing history is way older than that. So Shanghai's histories listened to hundred years old Beijing history, the first walled city goes back to benefa- and Basie and the layout of the inner city around the Forbidden City is dates back to the u on dynasty, which was the thirteenth century. That's kublai Khan's grandson Asst. Established that when the Mongols ruled over China so that lay out of the city and the sites you say within a dyke back I one hundred years and through the dynasty since then the Ming and the Qing dynasty or up until nineteen eleven when the ching dynasty ended. So there's a huge amount of things to see in terms of history. But you do have the news. So just like Shanghai has the PU Dong area Shanghai has its it's BT area. And I really liked that area as well. And I think they will shoot overlook the new area. And the other reason I think Beijing is really what saying is being the capital is fantastic window into all of China's culture through the museums and calories and the food because all of China has come to Beijing for work until live. So you get great restaurants that represent all of Chinese cuisine. The last thing would be simply the gravity and the energy of Beijing being the capital and being the center of power in China. I really do feel a sense of series snus in white about it that other places don't have. On example. I always comes to mind is in Shanghai. And Beijing when you go on the subways you need to go through security check and put your bags through the x-ray machine. In shanghai. You often see people push past the security God's not put their bags through the x-ray machine. And nothing happens. If not want saying that happen in Beijing, everyone diligently puts the bag through the machine out know, what that means if they don't do it. But it's just a little sign of things the mall seriously in a way. And then you feel that you feel that here. So I think that's something to take away when you come here. All right. And what kind of tenor would you recommend for someone who had say a week to visit in the Beijing area? This all the big science, which we can run through. But I would definitely recommend trying to mix it up a bit. So the big science there and you'll go and see them, but try and. Balance that we it some more casual trips some casual walking around to some areas, go out to of course, the great wall to get out into the hills. You might wanna go to pice like seven nine eight and not district. I say that because Beijing can have a lot of traffic the sites can be extremely crowded with Chinese tourists, and it can be a bit of Wilmington. I really wouldn't recommend trying to hit all those big sites. Just after day. I'm a person that really gets temple fatigue or. One palace. You've seen the mole type thing. So I'm really conscious of not trying to recommend people. I have to say holy sites. No, see few big ones and mix it up. And I think you'll get the base experienced by doing it that way. Okay. Well, let's get a little more specific where are you going to start us the big daddy of the mole in the one that everyone will see and should see the foot bidden city. So the food bitten city is the old palace grounds and related complexes that the empress through dynasties lifting since kublai Khan established the current layout in the thirteenth century and all the emperors since then have lived there have built up there on buildings within that area. So you go into the Forbidden City, which is cold all alternately called the Palace Museum. You'll be there with half of China. At fills..
