The Streets of Beijing

The streets are full, so many people. I am sure there are areas less congested, and to be fair it was Chinese holiday. People on the street wanted to take pictures with us and wanted me to take their picture. It took some time to get use to it at first, but they did stare, giggle and wave or give a peace sign at us.

I took a lot of pictures while moving. This was a fast trip, and stopping was not a luxury, so I someday will get to all the video I took. I just held the camera to the window and let it run. At one point we were in traffic with a commuter bus full. It was fun to watch them watch us. I think a couple noticed the video camera in the corner of the window.
