Beijing - Day 6 (5/24/09)
One thing that I have noticed here in Beijing being a diabetic is that many of the restaurants and even some stores do not have diet or light cola, and sometimes do not even have water. When I was at KFC a few days ago I couldn't get anything but regular pop, because they did not have bottled water or diet pop. I am curious as to how many diabetics there are in a city such as this, and having dificulty obtaining low or no carbohydrate items for meals. I have seen coca-cola light but only at the larger grocery stores; the small markets and restaurants do not seem to carry such an item. I am quite excited for the bullet train and the trip to Tianjin tommorow.
