even more beijing

Some more mixed Beijing pictures. The first six were taken around a big shopping street – called Wang Fujing – with all the shops with big names in the world. The pictures themselves were not taken at the Wang Fujing, however, but in smaller streets around it. These pictures show like everyday life (or every evening life) with little shops selling mostly food at their window.

The seventh one is my favourite of all my Beijing pictures. We were having dinner in this restaurant when I saw these four cooks sitting in a room in front of the kitchen. I took my camera and approached them, and with some mime – I don’t speak Chinese, and they didn’t speak English – they agreed to me taking this picture. Unfortunately, lighting conditions were not so good, but I like the picture very much anyhow. The next two pictures I took while walking the streets. The Mahjonghh players I saw through an open window, and I immediately pointed my camera at them. They never even noticed someone taking a picture. Also on the streets we found a couple of chess players, not too far from the Temple of Heaven.
