Great wall of Beijing

Great Wall of China… no introduction needed….  I was in Beijing on a business trip and explore Beijing at the same time… it is so nice being in this job!

A weekend in Beijing… I went to places like Forbidden City, its unfortunate though that there are areas that were closed for renovation.   I was able to watch the famous Peking opera (didnt really know that opera is a Chinese thing – a colleague reminded me though).   And of course – being in Beijing, we tried the very delicious Peking duck.
