Autumn in Beijing Day 2 - OLYMPIC GREEN

After the 2-hr bus ride from the Great Wall to the City, we took the subway to the Olympic Green station. These were the stuff we saw when we got out of the station:


i don't know what this is haha



huge musical instruments


And since we were so tired and hungry, we headed to one of the Chinese restaurants in the area.


the utensils were actually sealed


We had so much for dinner! It was so authentic yet very cheap! So worth it!:)


old Beijing restaurant


Beijing is the home of the 2008 Olympics. It's amazing how Beijing has transformed a huge piece of idle land into a perfect venue for the Olympics.


 Olympic Pagoda

 lights are changing colors

 the huge Olympic torch

 At The Bird's Nest (Beijing National Stadium)

 good architecture

I love this place!


the Water Cube (Beijing national Aquatics Center)

It was a tiring yet productive day. We headed back to the hotel in the middle of the cold weather. Had so much fun walking while seeing all the city lights.
