"Beijing, A City of Contradiction" Beijing by jeanx58

That is my daughter, Jenny. I live here, with my daughter and my wife.
This is a city full of contradiction. City old, City new. People polite, people rude. There are lots of places that make people pleasant and places make people ill. The weather is lovely and of nuisance.


Track Transportation Station at Shangdi, Beijing.

Drum Tower

And Shishahai Lake.

    Just back from a week in your wonderful city. You summed it up so well for me with your introduction. Would love to revisit in Autumn when I wouldn't be another smelly westerner because of the heat & humidity. (lol!) Xie xie!

    Seems we picked the wrong season to visit your city. We are viting in july instead of the autumn you recommend
