Wow, a great article and it looks like a great place to spend a day! Thanks for the heads up on the Metalsmith article. We are going for sure! Teri Lynn

The latest issue of Metalsmith has an article about China in which it lists
"798 - chee jyo bah", (this is the name of the area, I think) a complex of
warehouses converted to contemporary galleries and art centers in Beijing.
You might inquire about this center. They would have English speaking art
students I am sure who might be able to guide you. Vegetarian food is not
hard at all to find, but I personally would eat only cooked and fruits with
outer shells you peel. You will find their soups delicious but I had a hard
time trying to get salt! So take a little shaker! As far as avoiding
tourist gift markets, etc., some of those tourist traps give you great
insight on some of the oldest production  techniques in the world. You
don't have to buy! Plus take dollar bills. Those are easy to hand out for
favors or small items!  Jackie Richards, Tucson Az.
