Blue Sky Beijing

The blue sky in the background of this photo was a rare site in Beijing. We were lucky to see it and the next day the pollution returned to normal oppressive levels. What I mistakenly thought was morning fog for a few moments, when I first arrived, was instead a gray smog that envelopes the city usually every day.

Olympic progress report video

In this video clip, Bryan and I observe the Olympic progress. You can also see that we’re having a good time. Learn more about Beijing, the Olympics, and how they’re going to get that done in my post on Textura Design.

Mechanic Mao

This gentleman administers the curbside service center near our hotel. He was nice enough to pose for a photo and proudly displayed his Chairman Mao pin. I expect the Olympics tourist will love him. He refused my offer of a tip for the photo and barked some orders at a mechanic before I left.

Biking through the streets of Beijing offers a myriad of sights… and industrial smells. It ranges from light sweet crude to Kuwaiti sensimilia to high-sulphur coal w/ a hint of turpentine… The more exotic, the more we cracked up at the insanity of it all.

Beijing is a spectrum of activities. Bikes carrying buckets of meat and buckets of tar to baby bakchoy.
