Explore Beijing

Martina and I have also taken the week to explore Beijing. It is a huge city, most part are the product of boring communist city planning but in bits and places, you will find some surprises. Like the 798 art district, a collection studio in a remote factory warehouse. Gabrielle's husband Dave also owns a place there which he converted into a surreal penthouse.

The Great Wall was great, even though we only did the commercial Badaling and didn't do the one day hike in unrestored nature part of the wall.

And finally there were some real good food in Beijing, the duck sucks but the regional cuisine are great.
