Tianjin 2016

Dad wanted to see his former school Yaohua (wiki).  Right before we left, he suddenly announced that he would like to see his second sister at breakfast. I was surprised. I had asked many times as where and whom he’d like to go and see so I could plan. I have no contact with 2nd Aunt so where did we start?

The cost of gas in Beijing, 92 octane is ¥5.55 and 95 ¥5.92 per liter, which equals to $3.46 a gallon, sure is more expensive than in USA, this 2009 blog complains on gas prices too.

The drive to TJ is, relatively smooth. We had time to talk in the car (although I would have preferred train), and got to many sites that I or we intended to visit. First we went to Hebei University of Technology 河北工大/河北工业大学, it’s an exhibit on Zhou Xuexi. Next, I visited the famed Wudadao 天津五大道, and Jianfu Temple 荐福庵. Before dinner, we got to visit a relative and had dinner at Goubuli Buns 狗不理包子. Going back to Beijing was a little problematic because I needed A Ticket to Ride. A few random shots of Tianjin.
