Pagodas, stadium, apartment buildings34 viewsA view from atop on of the fake cliffs. You can see a couple nice Bai pagodas and in the distance, before the apartment buildings rear their dull exteriors skyward, you can see the top of the olympic stadium complex.mudmine
"Rudy's been to Canada!"56 viewsThis might be my favorite picture from China yet. These kids were part of a huge herd from their school, waiting in a disorderly line to be let in small batches into the large maze that is one of the few things at Yuanmingyuan not in ruins. Seeing some foreigners standing quite near them, one of them offered me a small piece of candy, and then the girl with the tissue in her nose barged up to inform Hilary in excited Chinese that the kid on the left had been to Canada, a fact that he seemed kind of reluctant to own up to. Typical kid stuff, but this picture makes me laugh everytime I look at it. mudmine

Getting off the subway43 viewsIn preparation for the 2008 Olympics, the Chinese government has been trying to get citizens of Beijing to be more considerate of others in public situations, encouraging them to stand in orderly ques at ticket windows and to not litter, for example. There's been some improvement, but people still will still try to get onto the subway before letting everyone who wants to get off. It can lead to a lot of unnecessary pushing and crowding during rush hours. mudmine
