Today was a good day.

A walk through the streets to blend into everyday life.


Parents take their kids to school

A stroll through the park to watch people exercising, dancing and doing Tai Chi, Gongfu, etc.

Girls and swords…Nice!

A few games of table tennis!

Table tennis tables in the middle of the sidewalk. Now, HERE’S  a country that’s got its priorities in order!

Making new friends…

Hmmmm….red paddle, black paddle. Wonder if there’s any subliminal message here?

And my idea of a “happy meal” All organic. All vegan.

A meal at Beijing Vegan Hut (Wo hen gao xin; translation: I am very happy!)

Lee Yu, owner of Beijing Vegan Hut. My new favorite spot!

Stay tuned for my review on www.happycow.net, Lee!

Doesn’t take much to make me happy, really.

Yes. Today was a good day. Hoy fue un buen dia. Jīntiān shìgè hǎo rìzi!

(I’m thinking of translating the posts to both Spanish and Mandarin. What do you think?)

"Once upon a time, there was a Jamaican civil engineer living in New York who hated his job, followed his passion, started a sideline business publishing his own books, made enough money to quit his job, escaped the rat race, ran off to a tropical island in the South Pacific, and started a tourism business so he could give tours of the island to pretty girls every day....and live a nomadpreneur's dream life."
