Friday Photo: Banquet Hall

China celebrates International Women’s Day every year on March 8. Usually what that means is women in the workplace are hosted to a lunch or perhaps given the afternoon off. When I taught at a university in China, my classes were in the morning, so I always felt a bit cheated when the school officials proudly announced that we didn’t have to work in the afternoon.

When I lived in Beijing I occasionally got to attend a Women’s Day luncheon, hosted for foreign women in the city at the Great Hall of the People, China’s main government building. The event was held in the banquet hall, which can host a sit-down banquet for 10,000 people!

As you can see, this photo was taken awhile ago. The waitresses are all PLA soldiers.

Great Banquet Hall

I always enjoyed the chance to visit this historic place where President Nixon dined with Premier Zhou En-lai in 1972.
