Travel Photo Thursday

I'm posting over at The Budget Travelers' Sandbox 


May 2009 - Beijing China


I've been posting our trip to China (out of sequence) that have inspired me to look back at our trip to China. Our trip was before I started blogging our travels.

  1. I loved your reference to out of sequence as I do that all the time. . .jumping from one thing to another. Keeps the reader paying attention I always say! Your photos are great - as usual.

  3. That stadium seems somewhat more dramatic in less formal photography.

  6. I saw the bird's nest, but don't remember seeing much else. The temperatures were outrageously hot when I was in Beijing. I can remember trying to cool down, constantly!
