Off to Beijing

Off to Beijing today, for a meeting with a China Bay client there about Chinese taxation issues. That’s what I like most about what I am doing: every day is different. And another great thing is that I always tend to meet interesting people with interesting stories: be it clients, friends or reporters. The biggest problem is that there is just not enough time in a day to everything I want to do.

It is always nice to go back to Beijing. Tonight I plan to have a couple of beers with old friends. Flying back to Shanghai on Saturday, where I plan to have Belgian mussels for dinner at the Hilton Hotel (I was informed they flew them in from Europe). In Beijing I used to go to Morel’s quite often, enjoying a Belgian beer with mussels and french fries, but I have not found a place like that in Shanghai.

  1. Not a bad idea, do you want to run one in Shanghai (I will be a regular customer, both for mussels and witbier)? Or maybe we should convince the owner of Morel’s in Beijing to set up a branch in Shanghai. I think there is a market for this in Shanghai, just as for a good Russian restaurant.

  2. Hi Marc,

    I’m planning to visit Beijing in a month. Any news on Morel’s and/or Belgian Fries in Beijing? I heard someone opened a Belgian Fries shop there recently …
