One weekend, I decided to check out the East Orthodox Church inside the Russian Embassy in Dongzhimen. After an hour of walking and explaining myself in Mandarin, I faced a Russian security guard who could not speak Mandarin or English so it was the end of the line for me.
I rewarded myself with a meal in some random 胡同 hutong, revisiting some of my recent discoveries.
