A random assortment of Beijing snaps (WARNING: very photo heavy…)
Men playing board games on the street
Walking through the hutong near our hotel
Candied fruit – we tried the hawthorne berries (red kebabs) – ok but once was enough.
Carving Peking duck for us at Da Dong Restaurant – THE place to eat this Beijing delicacy (it was VERY good!!)
Random Beijing street at night
A bold statement:
Geoff and Arlo at the Water Cube (where the aquatic events were held at the 2008 Olympics – now it’s a water park with slides and stuff)
The Bird’s Nest (Olympic Stadium) – just about 200m from the Water Cube
The Olympic Tower (telecommunications tower) – just about 200m from the Bird’s Nest
Why is it that when the action is priceless, I become a crap photographer? Another magical moment – blurred!!
Coal cakes – part of the cause of Beijing’s winter pollution problem
Tanya and her ever-so-photogenic baby girl
The CCTV building on one of the smoggiest days of our week in Beijing
Improvised cooking method – the hairdryer. Hutong street food.
Chinese translations – a joy to read! Why can’t people double-check their spelling before hitting ‘pring’?
Lanterns hanging in Ghost Street
On the road in the country
