A taste of Beijing


I'm finally back from Beijing, but I've found out that Blogger is currently blocked in China, thus I am blogging to you from a proxy site, which I probabably shouldn't be doing, but... a girl needs to blog!! Lets just hope that this proxy site doesnt get blocked as well - stupid chinese censorship...

Anyway on to more exciting things - heres a picture recap of my weekend in Beijing!

We went to the forbidden city:




... and to tiananmen square:


(me and homeboy mao. lol.)

The next day we went to the great wall - the greatest workout of my life...





and we visited the birds nest, the national theatre, and the watercube - and ive gotta say the watercube is my favorite out of the three







Then we visited this awesome renovated factory - called 789 - which is now full of contemporary art galleries - it was probably my favorite place that we visited but sadly we couldn't take any pictures =(

anyway, I dont know how many more posts I can make from China - seeing that blogger is blocked - so I might not be able to post again till next weekend ... it sucks... but... what can you do?
