Beijing is "postcard views"

Ni Hao!

Bejing offers much in cultural sites with a very modern city.

I found it much more "smoggy" in 2010 and the traffic is worse! But visiting Yong He Gong (Dali Lama Temple) or Temple of Heaven are still a great sites

I took a photo of Starbuck's in the Forbidden City in 2006 and I knew it was gone now. I took a photo of the exact same shop in 2010, now a gift shop

    Great travelogues here too. The great wall seems to have this 'dare' quality about it. Well.......one day, maybe. Thank you for this great page.
