This street is very close to Tiananmen Square, Beijing. There is a lot of classical architecture and old stone buildings that line the road. There’s also an old streetcar that goes up and down the street. It’s all too good to be true, and is probably at least partially fake, but that’s okay with me. It seems barely authentic enough to seem passable.
I was looking for a place to stop for dinner with Tom Anderson, Priscilla Dorresteijn, and her boyfriend. We walked up and down this street several times, just taking our time and taking lots of photos. We actually had to hurry it up because restaurants close pretty early around here!
