Ramo’s Hip New Lido Location Now Open
This pizza joint has leaped the rubble of Fangjia Hutong to some massively upgraded digs in Lido and, in the process, given the brand a completely new and family friendly slant. In addition to their already pretty stellar list of pizza pies, salads, and breakfast items you can also now find a play area complete with ball pit and other soft things for kids to act a fool with or on. Meanwhile, parents can sit back and watch their kids play while relaxing with a variety of the concessions they have on offer.
China’s Short-Lived Cheese Ban Has Been Lifted
Phew… we were really scared there for a minute. To be 100 percent honest, we were actually thinking about calling our China adventure completely off when we heard the news. But as of Oct 20, the highly contentious ban on brie, camembert, and other soft and blue, stinky cheeses was lifted. Cheese Republic, a popular importer and seller of the flavorful golden dairy product on the mainland, announced on its WeChat account on Friday, Oct 20 that it was given the clear to sell once again, before thanking “the Chinese authorities and especially to the CIQ [the Inspection and Quarantine Bureau]of Shanghai! I would also like to congratulate the French Embassy in China, as well as Great Britain for their success!” The post went on to say that all such cheeses should be fully available on the Mainland in five to six weeks.

Swan Lake is a stunning romantic tragedy, shaped by Tschaikovsky’s heartbreakingly beautiful score, that is equally technically and emotionally demanding for all involved in its production. In short, this ballet is a work of art in its purest form.
