My first encounter with Beijing, the mighty northern Capital, culminating with the breathtaking view of a deserted Great Wall at Simatai.
On Beihai lake, rows of ducks, a Beijing delicacy.
The Forbidden City fishermen.
Qian Men. 正阳门
In the fasting palace, where I almost got locked up (at 5pm, but yes, hungry)
Fuxing lu, West Beijing, with its extravagantly hooded modern towers, Chinese style.
Tian An Men on Sunday.
Works everywhere. Here the unfinished GaoMao tower in the distance.
The book market.
Old and New. Spring is coming.
The beautiful summer Palace South bridge.
Evening at Simatai.
Inner Mongolia in the distance.
Beijing traffic, every day, the Apocalypse.
