- I actually share the b'day with my Mum, so it was pretty cool to be showing her around the Panjiayaun and Hongqiao markets (bought her some pearls - good son that I am
) as well as managing to find a bar where they were showing the AFL Grand Final (which Dad loved, but didn't do much for me
) before heading to a traditional dinner of Beijing (Peking) Duck in the Hutong district. So, by all accounts - it wasn't too bad.
btw - being a tour guide for your parents in a foreign city ... talk about role reversal.
