There was no school for the Harvest Moon Festival (September 8th) and the street across from us through the railroad owned apartments had their holiday lights on (bottom two pictures). The top left picture is the giant moon. The top right picture is the CCTV tower (tallest structure in Beijing) lit up at night. This is taken from the top (13th) floor of our building.
The Harvest Moon Festival also included Moon Cakes. Moon Cakes are disgusting (although Squirt liked them). FRENCH Moon Cakes are delicious and we devoured quite a few before they went away from a bakery called Wedome. If we’d known they were going away, we’d have eaten more.
