Goelia 225

A five storey store that has a lovely florist, a rooftop cafe, and exhibition spaces. Beautiful stained glass windows, lovely tiles and interesting murals. 225 Beijing Lu - an oasis of interesting! Bonus free rose if you get a coffee (or buy something) at Benshop. What's not to love?

China - week 3

This week I heard very exciting news from afar which made me the happiest. Then there was a drive to the airport and back past coloured fake castles and real high-rises . Girls holding hands in Shanghai and a man walking a poodle in his paisley pyjamas. Long flight delays made marginally better by mochi, but then realising I don't really like mochi... My first hairdresser experience and romantic curls. Helpful phone calls via Seoul and further afield making this big world smaller. The nice doorman who smiled happily when I find the back way in - sharing my excitement, who is now happy to see me every night, walking me to the lift and waving goodbye. Big rain storms with thunder and the emergence of the biggest snails I've ever seen. Good people, not so good coffee, finding my groove.

A great little book I found at my local shops. I can't understand the words, but I get the pictures.
