Tuesday/ Beijing bound

Here are my pictures from today’s trip to Beijing.  The flight from Shenzhen to Beijing is almost three hours to the north, but that did not make much difference in the weather : Beijing seems to be as warm as Shenzhen is this time of the year.

I love the gigantic red characters etched out against the blue blue sky.
I traveled with a colleague but I may have been the only lao wei (foreigner) on the plane. I didn’t spot any others while we were boarding.
At the top of the steps and I am about to step into the Boeing 737-700.
This is at Beijing airport, on the way to baggage claim and to get a taxi to the city.
Beijing has SIX ring roads (freeways) around it. Other cities that I know of may have two or three.
We’re heading to Chaoyang district in the city where my firm’s Beijing office is.
Some interesting architecture on the way to the city.
And this is the spectacular China Central Television (CCTV) Headquarters building in the city.

  1. Willem, I really enjoy following your blog and read it every day. Keep up the good work and I will see you in Seattle one of these days. I was at Bryan & Gary’s place this last weekend. They are in “chicken heaven” with their new venture. Dale C.
