Geez! Visited Beijing and Xian a year ago in September. Had a couple days of business meetings and extended for a week. Found the sites and history fascinating. Are situations like your bar/drug test experience a regular thing?

If you believe the cop who was yelling at me, it was a ROUTINE CHECK! ROUTINE! In my seven years here, I have never even heard of this happening. The fact that they just announced their new Standing Committee is most likely the culprit here. They've been acting very weird and tense throughout the entire party Congress, crippling Google and putting Beijing on total lockdown. It was bizarre; they came into this little tiny bar and specifically took all the foreigners out and took us directly to the hospital.

I refused to submit to their test (but ended up taking it anyway, since my only other option seemed to be gambling that they wouldn't put me in jail for four days without notifying the consulate) and went to the police station where they separated me from the French guys who had taken my refusal as their cue to refuse as well. Then they tried to intimidate me a bit. After playing all my cards and losing, I went back to the hospital and passed their stupid test. Then I went to a (different) bar and threw back three Manhattans before heading home where my cat had pissed on my curtains.

I've never particularly cared for American cops. Now I think they're pretty fantastic.
