While recovering from the jetlag (seriously, I fell asleep while watching Identity Thief, a super funny stand-up comedian, ánd a thriller the last few days..), I also made a slow start sorting out all the photos I took during the past 4 weeks… Actually, I did most of it yesterday, and I have one half-full memory card to go as we speak. Most of the photos needed some serious editing, since the smog ruined them all. They all had this unattractive, brown-ish dust-layer over them..

Beijing itself was great – a lot of things to see, for very reasonable prices. Ghost Street and Bar Street (go, for example to Hutong Pizza) are REALLY nice places for dinner, the kinda thing that we started to miss about Europe: just nice, cosy dinner restaurants. Besides the obvious things as the Forbidden City, the Great Wall (which, actually, was really impressive in real life. And steep. Oeff), the Olympic Park (réally good at night and to have dinner!), we also liked the Lama Temple a lot, as well as the many, many parks (and especially the Beihei Park), which are absolutely breathtaking – especially on a bright day.

Unfortunately, the subway only runs till 11 pm, which makes it a little frustrating to live like a-European-who-is-in-a-warm-foreign-country: namely, have dinner as late in the evening as possible. Seriously, those things can really piss me off. Also, you’ll have to get used to the smell in that subway, omg. Omg. But well, cheap it is.

  1. What a great photo set! China looks unbelievably interesting and exciting. After spending three weeks in Japan, China is high on my ‘must see’ list. It’s just such a satisfying challenge to travel somewhere where the language and culture is just *so* different. You look like you’re having a blast – totally jealous!

    .K.

    • Thank you!! It was absolutely super interesting and breathtakingly beautiful. I’ve never seen such spectacular sunsets in my life (I’ll upload those photos later on this week!).
      I’ve always wanted to visit Japan… xx

  2. So jelly! Looks awesome

  3. Wauw, echt hele leuke foto’s!
    Zou zelf ook wel eens daarheen willen (:

    Liefs, Liese
    PS: ik hou een give-away, doe jij al mee?:)
