The Lucky Shamrock – Farewell to Beijing

After a frantic final day of shopping, BotF scrambled to get to the airport on time – leaving no time for lunch. Fortunately, there was a choice of two bars both promising beer, steaks and snacks. BotF opted for the Lucky Shamrock, which offered Guiness and Kilkenny on tap as well as Carlsberg and Tsing-Tao. Beijing airport is an absolute collosus and has been designed to look like a dragon. There is a five minute ride from check-in to the exit gates. Plenty of workers keep the place as shiny as a button.

The last photo is of a can of YanJing – Beijing’s beer in a great can coloured with Beijing Blue. My choice for a beer t-shirt, of which there are a dearth in China.
