Beijing Hotel

An undated picture of Peking Hotel, or Beijing Fandian 北京饭店.

I stayed there in 1982. Ruby and Lin came to visit. She had her Beida (Beijing University) ID and he was still at the stage of finding himself – 无业游民 so had no ID. The mean door guard won’t allow him to go in. How ironic. Lin weekends at Zhongnanhai 中南海 just a stone throw away from the hotel .. come and go there at will ..
