A quick one while he's away

Laptop is fixed so blogging will resume ASAP! In the meantime here are some pictures of me in China.

Rooftops of the forbidden city from Jingshan Park, Beijing, China

At Temple of Heaven Park, Beijing, China

A small section from the Great Wall of China

Having just completed the 2 hour trek of the wall, it was exhausting!

Eating dim sum at City Hall in Hong Kong

Taking a trip to the main land on the Star Ferry, Hong Kong

C and I on route to see 'Big Buddha' on Lantau Island, Hong Kong

So these are just a few snippets from my week in China. I only went to Beijing and Hong Kong to visit my friend C from sixth form. I was able to stay in her lovely apartment which had fantastic views of Hong Kong plus she knew all the best places to take me. Beijing was incredible and not only was it a massive culture shock the architecture and colours of the city was so vibrant and beautiful!

I loved the authentic Chinese feel penetrated through almost every street and alley in Beijing but I equally loved the ultra modern cityscape of Hong Kong. I really want to see more of China so hopefully I'll get to go back and explore more of the astonishing country.

The next stop was Vietnam but I'll upload photos next time. Until then I'm uploading albums onto facebook and it's taking forever.
