Air Canada enRoute - - CONTENTS -

We’re on the (sculp­ture) hunt in Copen­hagen and brush­ing up in Bei­jing. In­stant Pots take over the world, while Chicago’s EMC2 ho­tel wel­comes its new ro­bot over­lords. Plus, a pair of scen­trepreneurs share their travel musts and mega-bars are the new mini-bars in Buenos Aires.

AIR CANADA of­fers daily flights to Bei­jing from Van­cou­ver and Toronto.

Head to Bei­hai Park – one of China’s largest and best-pre­served an­cient im­pe­rial gar­dens – in cen­tral

Bei­jing to see street cal­lig­ra­phers prac­tis­ing dishu. Us­ing a spongetipped Baiyun brush (named af­ter no­table street cal­lig­ra­pher Bai Yun­zhu) and wa­ter, artists tran­scribe Chi­nese lit­er­a­ture and poetry onto con­crete with swift, grace­ful strokes. Be sure to snap a pic­ture be­cause these char­ac­ters dis­ap­pear in a flash.
