camping wasn't too well organised last year (the way i like indie festivals to be, make no mistake), and in the end i just put my tent up on a random spot and wasn't given any hassle. the fact that we could party at the electronic panda stage until late (and that there were weekend passes), meant that security didn't bother if you stayed on the inside after the main acts finish. not so sure if they'll just kick everyone out after the show? i tried calling the organisers (beijing number on the website's contact page), and they didn't know if there was camping or not.
i'm still going to try, though.
Asked my coworkers and they said that there is actually a law that prohibits a passenger on a bicycle or battery operated scooter, and this is only an issue at intersections, since this is where the cops and flag-wavers are.
Of course there is nothing on any government website stating this, but there you go.
OK, I've been here for two weeks now, and my body is starting to hate me. 90% of the meals I've had were in restaurants, and I'm completely addicted to all the great local dishes. Problem is, they are usually pretty oily. Delicious, but maybe not so healthy, so I'm trying to cut down on the oil. Are there any recommendations on local dishes that are a little easier on the cholesterol levels?
