All my memories of warm Beijing summer evening get-togethers merge into one. Dancing at the 798 art district Yen party, grabbing meals at cozy Yunnanese restaurants, sipping carefully crafted cocktails at the Apothecary, and wandering around Sanlitun with Taurin, Re, Vicky, and James.
“I have noticed that when all the lights are on, people tend to talk about what they are doing-their outer lives. Sitting round in candlelight or firelight, people start to talk about how they are feeling-their inner lives. They speak subjectively, they argue less, there are longer pauses.” – By Jeanette Winterson from Why I Adore Night
