Bejing, Part 1
China! What an experience! I'm too lazy to write any words but here's the first of many handfuls of images that I wanted to show you all! You'll get to meet some new characters which I will introduce along the way. BUT to start things off, I just want to remind my readers how giant the country of China is:
And introducing Mama Huynh - Starbucks fan, Crossfit junkie (she's more in shape than I am), and nurse to the rescue
Brother James - League of Legends player, origami extraordinaire, and really into bikes (i bought him an awesome Schwinn bike but he was very specific about what he wanted and encouraged me to sell it) lol - he's not a big fan of being in front of the camera
Papa Huynh - Green tea drinkin', western movie watchin', & multilingual wonder (he can speak Cantonese, Mandarin, Vietnamese, & English fluently!)
My first night view from the amazing Beijing Marriot Hotel.
Some beautiful craftsmanship.
They sweep away snow with a broom. Believe it!
Detail to the last doorknob. Love it.
The Summer Palace
The mask that my brother is wearing? No, its not because of sars. It was ridiculously cold - so cold that we were starting to feel numbness in our faces. They were selling masks all over China at a really cheap price. 2 for $5 USD
Family photo sans Grace =( Wished you were here!
And that's me.
More images to come! #beijing
