As we wind down our Beijing Experiences, here are a few photos that made the director’s cut only.
What could this be for, do you think? Take a WILD guess.
I took this 15 minutes after we took off from Beijing. 7 of the 8 people in these two rows next to us were already asleep and basically slept the entire way home. It is amazing to us where and how quickly the Chinese can fall sleep.
I know you will find this difficult to believe – but this guy is asleep as well.
These lovely red velour seats for a bar, but taken in out of the rain. Just down the way there were purple ones just like them. Lovely.
Our hotel adjoined this one – The Beijing Hotel. People spoke of it with reverence – “It is a GOVERNMENT hotel”. There wasn’t a time that we walked by that someone wasn’t taking a picture of someone else standing in front. So ….
I think it is supposed to be a knock-off of “Clark’s” – but who knows.
Now, I am all for garnish on a blueberry danish – but parsley?
“Hospital of Femoral Head” – just what the hell has to be wrong with you to wind up here?
This building is at the entrance to the airport. I wonder if something is lost in the translation?
And on our way home…
We have tried all year to get the photo of the Baldor factory just outside Shanghai – but it is hard as the train goes by at 300 km/hr. Finally, however, here it is – top right corner, yellow rectangle! Hi Terry and Beth.
And once we were back in Jiaxing…
All the staff received a box of lichee fruit yesterday. The interior of the container is 18″ x 12″ x 4″. Thank goodness we got them to stop giving us 2 of everything!
Just where did YOUR mind go?
