Hiking in the Cinque Terre

Thursday, January 7, 2010


Before returning to South Africa for Christmas, Neil and Liz Biggs decided to visit the capital of China, Beijing. As you can see on the map, there's quite a distance between Shanghai, where they had been living, and Beijing. Some people fly between the cities and some take trains or even just drive.

In Beijing, Neil and Liz covered the main landmarks: the Forbidden City, the Temple of Heaven, Tiananmen Square, the Summer Palace and, of course, the Great Wall. I posted a couple of videos along with images they took on their trip. The first video shows magnificent aerials of Beijing. The second video (posted at the bottom) is one Liz made.

Sunday afternoon in the Temple of Heaven gardens, in Beijing. People gather in groups and sing, dance, play games and gamble.
