- Beijing Day 1 - NovotelI had been to Beijing twice before in the 1980s, and 1990s. In hindsight, it seems like I do this once-a-decade pilgrimage to Beijing without any prior intention. But this time I just tagged along, ok, more accurately I was Posted by FrancisQ in RamBLer WithOUT BorDers | Oct 26, 2012
- Traffic in Beijing, getting a taxi, and riding the SubwayWalking on the street in Beijing is like the show "I shouldn't be alive. " Day 6... I nearly got crushed but a mega bus with 78 people on it going 60 mph on Jianguo rd!"

- 城市探索＿代步工具之一＿摩托車在你的雙腿間, 夾著個低聲歎息又扭力十足的引擎還帶著兩個無法掌握的圓, 男人眷戀摩托車不是沒有原因的.

- One Way or Round Trip?“One way or round trip?”
A seemingly simple question, considering I was only planning on taking the ferry into the city for the day before returning to Manly to meet up with my gracious host Alex. “Round trip.” Posted by dpteitel in On My Stoop | Feb 9, 2011
- Taxi! Taxi!Writing about our taxi-cum-time machine in Mysore got us thinking about the numerous cars we’ve ridden in since our arrival.
