Location: Beijing

Today we went to the Summer Palace. Uttam, Ben, Mary and I went paddle-boating on the lovely green lake. After that, we went to the Pearl Market. There, we were first given a choice to eat from McDonalds, KFC or Subway. Uttam was ecstatic because Subway had many flavors of Vitamin Water. Then, I went with Mary and Uttam to the toy store. Uttam really wanted some Rubik’s cubes, and Mary and I bargained for him. Uttam will not let me write how many cubes he ended up buying. Then, we sat in Starbucks because it smelled like America in there. Since we are apparently fast shoppers, we left the Pearl Market early. When we finally arrived back at the apartment, we were exhausted.
