After a tiring 12-hour flight, I arrived at Beijing at the night of February 15, 2015.
With the help of sleeping aid, I had a really good night sleep. I woke up with a fairly high spirit next morning, opened the curtain of my hotel room to take a picture of the city at dawn.
As I expected the visibility was not so good due to its notorious population problem, but at least I could see the Sun rising from horizon, which indicated a nice weather.
The breakfast was buffet style, with a large selection of mixed eastern and western foods. I was determinant that I was here for eastern style foods only.
I was searching through the foods, trying to find something I could duplicate my childhood breakfast. Here were my selections, which I considered the closest match with my childhood favor.
Shredded noodle with egg stir fried tomato (西紅柿炒蛋刀削麵);
A steamed red bean bun （紅豆包）;
A steamed mixed – vegetable bun （蔬菜包）.
At the end, I had to surrender to the Western tradition – by having couple of coffee to refresh myself before I flew back to my hometown – Xi’an (西安).
