The Bird Men: These guys kept these trained birds as pets, and I watched as they performed all kinds of tricks with them. One such trick involved holding the bird out on one arm, and with their free arm would toss food in the air, where the bird would freely fly up to catch the food, and land back again on the arm.

The Madness of ‘Ghost’ Street.

One of the off-tourist-brochure highlights of Beijing is ‘簋街’, otherwise more commonly recognised as ‘鬼街’ or ‘Ghost Street’. Running for almost a mile, red lanterns on both sides line the sidewalks of this stretch of road, with hungry punters lining up outside of its restaurants to get their fill. To ease the pain of the wait, a number of restaurants supply patrons with sunflower seeds or other such snacks to nibble on, with their shells disposed on the sidewalks. The most popular dishes on 簋街 are its 麻辣 dishes, oftentimes cooked with yabbies (or lobster-like shrimps), fish and stalls of 串 (chuanr).
