Beijing Sights


Beijing is a weird city. Many of the buildings are plain, and when passing by them, you wouldn't think twice about taking a picture of them. Then, almost as if out of nowhere, you ride past buildings like these, that have probably been here for longer than most people in the city have been alive. For me, that's a definite plus to living in this crazy metropolis. There is such a mix of modern and traditional architecture which makes for a nice aesthetic when cruising through the streets.
