2 highlights from the Beijing Zoo today. SUPER hot, but that didn’t stop thousands of Chinese people from going. Quick observation, I’ve never seen so many push each other to get a glimpse of a giraffe. 

Color Run is tomorrow and I’m stoked. I hate running, but it’ll be a good reason to be outside and see a new area of Beijing.
