Beijing Video Diary

March 17, 2015 / by / 0 Comment

Spring in Beijing is cold and dry and windy and nothing like Hong Kong. But Spring in Beijing is also sunny and bright and nice, giving the city a vibrant vibe, a true embodiment of the season. After more than a decade or so since my first visit when I was just a five-year-old toddler bundled up in layers of anoraks and scarves and hello kitty mittens, I revisited the “Northern Capital” earlier this (reading) week in hopes to rekindle the memories I had among the old walls and courtyards of this famous city. Rummaging through the hutongs or “little roads” on a rickshaw was a history lesson itself, so I’m not even a tiny bit guilty for not finishing my readings during this “institutionalized study break”. Just saying.

If a picture is worth a thousand words, I don’t know how many words it’s worth, a moving picture. Watch the video below, and yes, I filmed in Tiananmen Square. Very rebellious, I know.
