Arrived in Beijing on Monday afternoon and have been in meetings non-stop Tuesday through today (Thursday). Last night I connected with my brother Tom who is in country for the first time in his life and his Chinese colleagues suggested a restaurant near the Olympic complex that specialized in “Muslim Cuisine” from the western region of the country. Off we went, ending up in a basement disco where an Elvis impersonator and some ethnic dancers did a floor show while we ate meat on a stick and lots of lamb.
We passed on a whole lamb. This was on the menu and my brother nicknamed it “Snow Puff.”
We drank too much baiju and I am not well today and belching faint reminders of mutton under my breath.
Home tomorrow. No time for any church/temple visits while in China.
