The phone

The Phone. It's the last thing I see at night and the first thing I wake up to. I can often be found reading stories using The Guardian's mobile app.

The subway

The blasted subway. Cheap, convenient and horrible. I spend time using this to get to social and professional destinations. What's unique about Beijing's subway is that you'll get these salt-of-the-earth rural migrants with their rag bundles mixing up with neatly attired office ladies. All crushed together.

Let’s move on.

My notebooks

 

My notebooks. Moleskine. I use the little one for to-do lists, jotting down story ideas and reporting. I use the larger one to write out drafts, diagram article structures, and make long-term plans. And make notes obvs.

Sanlitun

An area well known among expats and trendy Chinese. Bars, cafes, restaurants and shops.

Read and work with good coffee

Eating out

Eating out in Beijing is a daily thing. And good.

Lots of goodness; daily.
