One A Day Photo Project: April 8th – April 10th

(I’m taking a photo a day of whatever is interesting in my life in Beijing. For the story behind this project, please go to the first entry in the project.)

April 8

View of Beijing from Xiangshan

Ack, another day where I forgot my camera. This photo is actually from nearly a year ago, when I went for a yoga retreat in Xiangshan (the Fragrant Hills). The view of Beijing from Xiangshan, as you can see here, was amazing.

The guy in the photo was a model of responsible environmentalism; he saw some trash on the ground when we were walking around looking for a temple, and–this is the impressive part–he picked it up to later dispose of it properly.

April 9

Jianwai Soho at dusk

This was not a day where I forgot my camera, but I didn’t leave my house all day on account of a total lack of interest in doing so. Oh well. Next time I shall take a photo of the inevitable baking/cooking project that is undertaken on these stay-at-home days. A photo of the Jianwai Soho complex at dusk, from a day when I actually did go out.

April 10

Eerily Empty Subway

Back in action with camera in tow. Beijing is so crowded that when it isn’t filled with people, it’s rather eerie.

    Your blog makes not living in Beijing anymore a little more bearable, the homesickness a bit less acute. It’s also such a motivation to keep studying so I can go back asap. Thank you!
