Are you a culture klutz? The May issue of beijingkids will have you rolling with the punches!
We lift the curtain on little-known local markets, the city’s best cultural centers and parks, and the life of international kids who attend local schools. In addition, four teenagers offer funny, touching, and quirky essays on cultural identity.
May 13 is Mother’s Day! (You didn’t forget, did you?) Find a list of brunches and promotions to mark the occasion in Dining. We also profile Frenchtastic cafe Crêpanini in Sanlitun Village and Jennifer Thome shows you how to make your own bread in Food for Thought.
In keeping with the culture theme, Jenn Ambrose writes about “small c” versus “big C” culture and Gareth Jones struggles to keep up with the Chinese approach to extracurricular activities.
With temperatures skyrocketing to 30°C and beyond, there’s no excuse to stay home! Jaunt out to Haidian District to see creatures of all stripes at Beijing Zoo and Beijing Aquarium. Don’t like the crowds? Escape to Changping to visit a pick-your-own strawberry farm. For something more physical, join a martial arts class and roundhouse kick boredom in the face!
In Learning, we hear from paleontologist Amanda Falk at Beijing International Bilingual Academy and teens from the International Academy of Beijing tackle the topic of racism and prejudice.
