Room with a View

Room with a View

This is the view from Bobby's apartment in Beijing. It is still freezingly cold during the night, brrr, chilly... That's why there are no leaves on those trees...

Bobby and the Hardrock Bear

Bobby and the Hardrock Bear

Bobby made friends with a local bear. While sharing a beer, they both discuss the details of their next adventure. Bobby used to be a fan of «Singapore's Tiger Beer» but this time, a «Beijing Beer» will do as well,...

Owner's Manual

Owner's Manual

This telephone is rather tricky to use! Especially because Bobby cannot read a thing on those buttons! Finally, Bobby gives up trying and uses his own cell phone instead.

Bobby and the WebCam Dog

Bobby and the WebCam Dog

Meanwhile, Bobby made more friends - this happens quite frequently in China, btw. This time, a small WebCam dog joins Bobby in his apartment. If you look closely, you will notice that the camera lens is in the doggy's nose and it is covered by a plastic cap! There is even a USB cable at his tail! Of course, the little doggy used to sit on a CRT monitor. No way, he could sit on one of those popular TFT monitors! Alternatively, the doggy uses the microvawe like in the picture.

The Brown Planet

The Brown Planet

Once in a while, dust from the Gobi desert is mixing with exhaust emissions from the greater Beijing vicinity, creating a carpet of thick brown air, cough, cough,...

Toy Department

Toy Department (1) Toy Department (2)

In his spare time, Bobby is raiding the toy departments of the local department stores. Bobby loves building block sets. Of course, there are sets from danish toymaker LEGO™ available, but Bobby is really impressed by the sets from Korean toymaker OXFORD TOY™. Finally, Bobby can build his own private army and take full control of the children's room!

Food

Food

Local supermrkets offer all kinds of western stuff. Bobby the Bear does not have to adapt to the local cuisine. Anyway, since local restaurants are quite inexpensive, Bobby refuses to do any cooking at home!

The Chinese Wall

The Chinese Wall (1) The Chinese Wall (2)

Of course, every adventure in China has to include at least one trip to the Chinese Wall (Great Wall), right?
