[Photos] First Snow in Beijing this Winter

This morning turned out to be a special one for most Beijingers as the city experienced its’ slowest snow fall in the last 60 years. I was able to get my camera and take some quick snaps before work at Tiananmen Square.

With Chinese New Years celebrations almost near the end, today was a perfect excuse for people to come out and see a different Tiananmen Square than usual

Snow makes for cool photos
