about quirkyBeijing

UPDATE: After six years in China–four of them in Beijing–I moved back home to sunny California in August 2011. I’ll keep updating this blog with my random mix of interests: history, food, design, and of course, quirkiness! Even though I no longer live in Beijing, I am still quite fascinated with China.

To be honest, I started this website because I dislike living in Beijing.   In a city of 16 million+ people, six ring roads, and however many years of history, there must be something I might like.  Right?

quirkyBeijing has been sighted:

• in the Wall Street Journal’s China Real Time on August 15, 2008 and January 8, 2009 as part of their Best of the China Blogs roundup
• in Time Magazine’s The China Blog
• and mentioned as an Olympic Model Worker by Danwei.
