Selling Corn On The Long Corridor

Back in Beijing, with our time in China beginning to run short, Desi, the kids, and I embarked on a "victory tour" of sorts. We had the aim of paying one final visit to some of our favorite local sites, both famous and known only to us.

Along the way, we tried to look at these beloved places through fresh eyes. And so it was, during a stroll through the Summer Palace, that we decided not to just walk by the man selling ears of corn smack dab in the middle of this centuries-old World Heritage Site. We stopped. We looked. We bought an ear. Man, are we gonna miss little vignettes like this!
