[Photo] Lost in the World

As I have noted throughout this week, the air quality in Beijing has been poor the past couple days. The AQI usually is high during the morning rush hour period and then it cools down during noon and the AQI kicks backup again around 4pm. But what happens when pollution and working late night happens? This happens:

I have been snapping photos around Beijing all week of this pollution so stay tuned for a photo essay from this entire week. Oh, by the way the Track “Lost in the World” by Kanye West has been on repeat for me all week.

[Photo] Summer is over and that means Winter is here in Beijing

I remember moving into my new apartment in Beijing and I would rush to my room and turn on the air conditioning immediately to avoid the heat that Beijing was experiencing. This was about 2 months ago. Today, I was freezing and no wonder, it was about 10 degrees celsius outside. Summer is long gone and here comes the winter season in Beijing that I have been dreading about. So what happened to Autumn? I think we had Autumn weather for maybe about a week if not less from the end of September to the first week of October. For recent events, the company I work for moved its office to Hanwei Plaza which is another large business complex in Beijing. It doesn’t really effect my traveling time to the office but I was able to walk a different route to capture another face of one of my favorite buildings in Beijing: that of course is the CCTV tower. You can see the building that burned down in the background.
