write up on Beijing (1)

I'm back,after 20+ days travelling - 10 days in Beijing, 3 days in Shanghai, 3 days in Nanjing and one week in my hometown Lianyungang. It didn't feel that long when I came back. I told myself it might be the last summer holidays to be carefree and crazy, so I packed my bag and set off on my own. Thinking it back, I miss those days I moved alone. As long as you're travelling, you wouldn't feel lonely even if you have no company. Something has been bothering me since I came back. I was really not in the mood for blog. I wish I hadn't come back so soon. There's no special someone waiting for me anyway. Well,I'm supposed to say something positive. Let me start over. I find it's really hard to write up from memory after so many days, but good thing that I had pictures and twitter.

Destination 1: Beijing

Beijing's still too big to maintain and you'll never get enough security checks there. I went there last November. But in Summer, Beijing gives you a different impression, say the terrible air pollution. I don't know whether it was the Year of Olympics last year or my last visit was in winter, I didn't catch a glimpss of haze. But this time,I was so shocked by the low visibility. I stayed there for 10 days, basically 9 of them were gloomy.






Luckily, I got the chance to taste the local Beijing yoghourt. You can get one for ¥1.5-¥4. You have to finish it and return the bottle before you leave. If you wanna keep the bottle you gotta pay more.

 We're all familiar with KFC, but do you know what the hell is a "KFC Select" is? Come to Beijing, and you'll figure it out.(It's located at Zhongguancun.)

Is it a truncated KFC with less dishes to choose from?
