北京 Beijing

上野は混んでいるので、パンダを見に北京へ行って来ました。
Since Ueno zoo is too crowded, we went to Beijing to see giant pandas.

というのはウソで、義弟の卒業式に参加するために、家族で北京に行ってきました。サプライズで義母も来ることになっていたので、これは行かねば・・・と。
およそ10年ぶり・・・4回目の北京。カールおじさんは初めてでした。
Just kidding, we went there to see my brother-in-law at his graduation. Maman also came (but it was a surprise to our brother) so we really wanted to go.
It's been about ten years and fourth time for me to visit Beijing. For Carl, it's his first time.

今回も羽田。やっぱり便利だもの・・・。お昼だったので、お店もにぎわっていました。ゲート近くには遊ぶところもあった!これ家にあったらいいなぁ・・・

We used Haneda again. It's so much closer! There were many people in the shopping area this time as it's noon. There was also a kids' playground near the gate. I wish if we had it at home...

あれまぁ、空港もこんなに立派に。。。中国国際航空だったので、ターミナル3に到着。シャトルで移動。かなり遠かった・・・。ちなみに、今回ピエ君は日本のパスポートで行きました。というのも、フランス人は観光でもビザが必要なので・・・(チベットの一件のせい?)。なので、カールおじさんだけビザ。前に行った時は、日本人もビザが必要だったけど、今は観光なら15日までビザ不要♪

The airport became so big! Our Air China plane arrived at Terminal 3 and we got on a shuttle to the main building, which was a little far away. By the way, Pierre traveled as a Japanese this time because French is required visa (Tibet issue?) So Carl needed to get visa. I needed it last time I visited China, but now we can stay 15 days without it.

入国審査では、カメラつきのモニターがあって、なんかハイテク。
預けたベビーカーは、飛行機出たところに無造作に置かれていて、あやうく通り過ぎるところだった・・・。帰りはゲートで預けたら、普通に荷物と一緒にターンテーブルに。
At the immigration counter, there was a monitor with a camera. I've never seen it at airports in Japan.
We dropped our baby stroller at check-in and it was placed in the middle of the way to the terminal. We almost passed through it without noticing. On our way back, we dropped it at the gate and was returned at baggage pick-up with other baggage.

義弟が空港に迎えに来てくれて、タクシーでホテルまで。タクシーも統一されていて、かなり文明化が進んだなぁと思いました。
Our brother came over to the airport and we took a taxi to our hotel. I was already surprised at taxis whose outside design is integrated (which wasn't at all before) and felt the city has been so much civilized in the past ten years.

Popcornchicken Soup
中国に来たら、どうしても確かめたかった。ケンタのポップコーンチキン。まだ健在でした!!
大好きなのに、日本ではもう売ってない・・・。
卵のスープも現地メニューの1つ。美味しかったです。
I wanted to make sure that they still have popcorn chicken at KFC in China. I was so glad to have it again! It's not available in Japan anymore. The egg & vegetable soup was a local menu and was good, too.
