Beijing Recap – Day 2 (part 1 of 2) – thank you Tsinghua and I.T. for the experience..and the best host…Yvette Tang

Dear Shaded Viewers,

Before I headed East to Beijing I spoke with two of my friends, Christophe Billet and Serge Carreira to find out what I must see on my very short trip to Beijing. I think that I did pretty well, Forbidden City, Temple of Heaven, Summer Palace, Hutong area, 798 daxenzi art district and of course JOYCE guo Mao china world 3. Most locations were packed into Day 2 (my first full day) and the last day…I have to admit Temple of Heaven was 'it' for me.  I spent the day with Yvette Tang and Flora Lau and regardless of the intense heat..we did have 'the boy from Beijing' as our driver and the car had air con, so 35+ tempertures and all, it was great.

We did so many things on Day 2 that I will break it up into 2 parts. Last image is of Flora Lau and Yvette Tang, they were the best,  I had so much fun with the two of them.
