New Android Phone?

I’ve been trying to get my hands on one of the new Nexus 6 phones… they seem to be constantly sold out! I’m a hardcore Android fan, I must say… even though I do use Macs and iPads, for my phone, I’ve always gone Android!

Best Neighborhoods in your city?

People tend to talk about cities generically, as if the whole thing has a certain “thing” to it, but I think neighborhoods are the most important part. Where is your favorite neighborhood to hang out in your city?

Daily Photo – Relaxing in Houhai, Xicheng

This is one of my favorite areas of Beijing. There is a beautiful lake that is surrounded by all sorts of little shops, restaurants, quaint bridges, and tons of interesting people. One of my favorite things to do is go here in the middle of the day, take a ton of photos, then relax in a cafe with my camera with a glass of wine (or two!) and watch everyone go by… still snapping photos. That is a good day!
