Beijing 2011, a set on Flickr.
Since I could not access WordPress while away (it is blocked in China!) I failed to update this blog. But I wanted to share some photos with my lovely subscribers.
We were joined in Beijing by the lively Amanda Wong and while she did a good job as our ‘Chinese Decoy’, discouraging touts who assumed we already had a guide, we showed her some sights as she had never been before!
It was good to get back to Beijing and experience Peking Duck again and to go to a up-market restaurant for my birthday.
Other than the food, a highlight of Beijing had to be the Summer Palace. We had a perfect day for it. There are a few pictures here.
I will post a few more pictures of Beijing and work back to Nanjing and Shanghai. Enjoy these for now.
