Beijing, China

Here are some sample pics from a recent trip I made to China. I stayed there for a little bit over a week. Beijing is a amazing city full of skyscrapers, wide avenues, modern highways, brand new shopping centers and magnificent palaces. It's hard to believe that all the development of the city started just 30 years ago. These pictures show the old and more tranquil side of Beijing.
