Before you take this too seriously people read it again, is is simply an ADVERT for Aquasana and is resorting to scare mongering and fear to sell its product.

I have lived here since 2001- article written 2016 I note- and I am alive, well and ruddy healthy thank very much. I drink,cook with and shower with plain old tap water. Dry skin, yep, but check up, likely weather related, not water. Beijing has a very dry climate, esp in winter, sensitive souls[oh those poor forigners] should invest in some moisuriser.

 

So, don't fall for all this BS and add to the already winging, moaning chorus of expats who claim Beijing isn't like back home. If back home was so great, which having been to most places, I doubt, drop me a line and I can give you directions to the airport.

Fake news, really fake, I tell you it is fake news.

Whoa, aren't you going a bit overboard here? You don't have ANY concerns about the water quality here?

haha good point. Do you think there are other places in Beijing that also have good margaritas?

Just came across another video Winkler made. It depicts a group of Chinese people gossiping about his at a grocery store, and is pretty thoughtful, funny and well executed. The performances aren't award worthy to say the least, but he strikes a good balance and pushes hard without going over the top. Quite good overall, and hopefully he keeps making more clips along these lines.

I've always had great nights there too, just dubious alcohol quality...

Also, people who randomly come up to you & ask you to scan their barcode! 

Hate those people.

This sends an interesting message about what makes a good boyfriend.

Pity the man too dense for satire.

All accents are equal, except some accents are more equal than others.

Also, not far from this Joy City store, there's a restaurant north of Jintailu station, on the west side of Tianshuiyuan street, called Lego that sells half descent sandwiches and has a fairly big inventory of Lego products. Doesn't seem to be an official branch of the company though, just retailing the products.
