Considering some early morning BBQ

Our chariot awaits at SFO

Pre-flight stretching

Our very own stuffed animals

Bliss at 30,000 feet, with wine flight

Dinner is served

Made it to the hotel in Beijing

Courtyard at Cote Cour

Spring has sprung

Entry from the alley

Our very own hutong

Out on the main pedestrian shopping street

Not too crowded yet

Tiananmen Gate as the sun sets

Tiananmen Gate

The crowd gathers

Flag at full mast

The changing of the guard

Approaching the flag pole

Ceremonial lowering of the flag

We might be being watched

Flag lowered

Lion column

Column and streetlamps

Very red wall

Getting back toward the hotel

Ancient ruins

Luxury shopping, available now!

Gleaming Apple store
