Something I did a lot on my trip to Beijing was making GI stories, and some of them were good enough and I did not want them to be lost in 24 hours.
I found this group of girls dancing, with these spectacular traditional dresses, was something very fast, barely had time to take out my camera, within a few minutes they had packed and left, with no idea what it was.
Amidst the temples and hutongs is the modern Beijing, the great architecture, the skyscrapers, the entire highway system, high technology and fashion, what truly makes it a world-class city, it is what I enjoy the most and where I spend most of my time.
I arrived in Beijing without plans, however I always had in mind that I would like go back to some places that had been my favorites, among them temples and others that had escaped me.
The first thing I did was go back to the Hutongs, walk among the streets, the gray brick buildings, the traditional roofs, the mix between the historic Beijing and the modern Beijing.
Most of my time in China spend it on Beijing, has been one of the best experiences in my life, a dream come true.
A great place of crafts and antiques, where you can get from a giant statue of buddha till a tiny bamboo cage for your lucky cricket.
This was a great opportunity to try out my new camera and spend an afternoon in peace and harmony with all around this very special temple.
In the Great Wall also I took pictures with my analog camera, few but really was not much to see.
Here also some photos I took with my analog camera in The Forbidden City, pretty colors of a beautiful day.
Of course the Great Wall it is an impressive construction but it was not at all that big as I imagined.
One afternoon in one of my visits to the Hutongs I decided get by Shichahai, I took the road for the Qianhai Lake which led me directly to Nanluoguxiang.
The Forbidden City It was one of the best places I've been in China and I should not have waited so long to visit it.
Was the China's National Day, and could not be better day to visit the Tiananmen Square.
I was not sure whether to publish these pictures for poor quality, the rolls I took in Xi'an have been the dirtiest and scratches that have had.
The City Wall of Xi'an is one of the oldest and best preserved city walls across China
In this second part I continue telling my adventures in what would be my favorite part of the city, the Muslim Quarter of Xi'an.
Following the trail of the food I find another world, as the entrance to another city, one with a delicious smell.
It was not until I be there that understood why this is considered the most important archaeological discovery of the twentieth century, something I'll remember all my life.
I never expected that this would be one of the cities that I most would enjoy on my journey through China.
