Perfect weather here in Phoenix after the rain earlier in the week knocked out all the pollution. 70 degree high, nice t-shirt and shorts weather if exercising and comfortable in jeans and light sweater.
As you said, inflation will take a bite out of your investments.If you are in a true buy and hold strategy, a 40 year investment will return close to 10% annually. Even in a down year like 2008/2009, if you had bought 40 years prior, you would still earn over 10% annually on your investments. (see *)*http://www.moneychimp.com/features/market_cagr.htm

Actually there were probably only 10 people total at the Wangfujin Uniqlo location.
I was, however, annoyed when they were saying welcome every 30 seconds.
I am in Beijing for the next 5 days and was wondering if any people had some time to meet for drinks. Its my second time here so I do not need to do most of the tourist things (although I did forget to see Mao's body last time so I might have that on my bucket list). Any other ideas for a solo traveller (I have family in town but plan to do a day or two of solo/drinking adventures)?
