July 8+9+10 Day 41+42+43

My relatives came to visit me from Shanghai on July 8th so I have been with them for Day 41 and 42. We stayed at a hotel near WangfuJing so that would be like my 5th time going there this trip. On my first night there, we attempted to go to this Muslim Hotpot restaurant at WangFuJing. Unfortunately, we were not expecting the restaurant to be sooooooo hot. It felt like an oven in there. Granted, it was a hot pot place, but even so, the customers shouldn’t be cooking the meat, not themselves. We ended up eating at this really fancy restaurant in the Peninsula hotel.

The next day we went to pick up the train tickets for my grandparents and headed to a mall to shop around before going to another hot pot place that my uncle knew was good and was not trying to cook their customers alive. The food was good, especially with the white wine my uncle bought.

The next day (July 10th), I went to the old summer palace (yuanmingyuan) with Jamie. The palace was destroyed by the French and English in the 19th century.
