Xi Jinping really made the rounds this weekend. China’s president paid a visit to a heat supply company and a nursing home in Beijing on Saturday, the same day Chinese social media platforms nearly collapsed on themselves at the sight of him walking among the masses to nosh on steamed buns at a local eatery.
Xinhua said that he arrived at the heating company Saturday morning to learn about the city’s heating layout and equipment upgrade.
The president expressed his greetings to the front-line staff of the company and asked them to work meticulously to ensure all households can enjoy a warm winter and a happy holiday.
Xi arrived at the nursing home around 11:00 a.m. and visited a number of senior people, asking about their monthly income and how much they pay for the nursing home.
