Obligatory Jong guo ren pose. After a year in China it was like "You mean people just stand there???"
Everyone looks nervous as we pass the army men...
We stop at games workshop to ask directions and i hide my face in shame. DON'T LOOK AT MEEE! I'm not quite sure how we equated fantasy model geeks with knowledge of sushi venues, but it worked.
The opium den! mwah ha! Left to right kyodomo, totalximmortal, filimonovna, funkyfunkyusopp breaking the dark theme, myself and lowlyconcubine
After entering we found out it was japanese upstairs, chinese downstairs so opted for dim sum. The manager/waiter(?) thought our photographer was Japanese and asked us why you don't see many lolitas in Britain.
Our resident photographer/Canadian. We tease the hell out of him but he does a good job of shepherding us around and we'd be pretty lost without him. For the whole proper dimsum experience he ordered for us in cantonese and the waiter kept asking "are you sure you want to order that? You don't want to scare them away"
kyodomo looks nervous
totalximmortal bravely gives it a go

A small child called out to us and then got REALLY confused XD
We had another small child later on that turned and said "Oh look! princesses!" XD
