What a couple of weeks it has been for America! Reaching the final of the women’s world cup, victory for same sex marriage – and also Donald Trump’s decision to enter into the race to become President of the United States (only in America) – the “American Dream” is very much alive and well! With all this excitement stateside there are a couple of us Brits in Beijing who are feeling a little left out – so what better time to crash the party than by hijacking Beijing’s annual American Independence Day run! This week Placenta, How Long and Two Stones invite you to wear “Red, White & Blue” clothing and in doing so celebrate all things American and British (or French, Australian, Kiwi, Russian, Thai….or basically any country with red, white or blue). Expect blue skies, hutongs, mediocre food, singing and most importantly cold beer!
