A good hotel in Beijing

I went in China this summer and I spent one week in the Beijing King's Joy Hotel, whose address is : No. 81, Meishi Street, Xuanwu District, Beijing

this hotel is not very far from the Tienanmen place, is very cheap (40$) and there is a very good restaurant in the hutong near the hotel. Hope it can help you...

Ratatouille : a great great movie

It has been a long time since, since I laughed because of a great comic movie… Ratatouille is a little rat, who wand to become a great chief in Paris. When you watch this movie, you become hungry and this movie is very well realized, there is a good timing and rhythm. The drawings of Paris are marvelous. It is worth seeing this movie, even if you are no more a child.

Simataï: marvellous the chinese Great Wall

After two weeks of holidays in China, some pics of the Great Wall: the part of Simataï. This part is worth be seeing, it has only very few tourists there, it was not rebuilt yet and thus kept any sound charms… Moreover there is low almost no salesman on the run. To make or see absolutly if you pass near it. It is necessary to be in good physical condition to be able to go up in Simataï and especially a good pair of walking shoe…

My week Harry Potter: The Deathly Hollows and the movie

I was in the FNAC (a big french store for books, disks, computers...), and I did not resist to buy the last Harry Potter : “Harry Potter and The Deathly Hollows”. The intrigue puts a little time to set up itself, but one is glad finally to know the fate of Harry Potter. Poor Albus sees its will have put a little at evil but the final he will be rehabilitated… As a conclusion, it is not great literature (good it is true it is written in English…) but that slackens… On the other hand I went to see the same week : “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix”

there too the intrigue puts much time to set up itself… certain elements overlooked and others are presented in an unmethodical way! I am fan of the 4 first opus, where the dream and fairyhood are omnipresent… I know the last Harry Potter want to be much darker as Voldemort seizes the power… But that does not want to say that the film must all sacrifice to the darkness. In conclusion, I was very disappointed! A good film: to see in DVD not more

Enough of Google: test Exalead

If you are fed up of the oneself-saying supremacy of Google as "search engine" on Internet, I propose you to test a new search engine, of the new generation: Exalead

this search engine was or is still implied in the European search engine Quaero, if this last is born or not…. The strong points of Exalead are thumbnail previews of the sites

I like also the possibility of making research directly in Wikipédia, the search engine for films is very good and the zapette is a brilliant idea: try it absolutely

moreover Exalead allows you to carry out research with regular expressions, the famous RegEx: the experts will appreciate. To finish and like quality guarantees: COCK-A-DOODLE-DOO, this search engine is French and was founded by François Bourdoncle: a pure product of the best French schools (Polytechnique and Mines)
