Trip to Beijing and Tianjin

Spent another couple of weeks in China on another project. Here is the China Central Television Building that burned on New Year Day (Chinese New Year). It was caused by a fireworks accident.

This scene is of an older neighborhood near the main business district. These guys are enjoying a plate of noodles for dinner.

I literally just turned around 180 deg and took this picture of the new World Trade Center. The neighborhood is changing rapidly.

Went to the flea market again.

Bought this slide rule. Sold it on eBay for $91.

This picture is from Ancient Culture Street in downtown Tianjin. Some sort of fashion shoot going on.

This is a night scene from downtown Tianjin along the riverfront.

These are some of my Spanish workmates posing along the Hai He river in Tianjin.

This is the hotel where we stayed. The Marriott Renaissance Tianjin Lakeview.

Here is the lake view from the 11th floor. That is downtown Tianjin in the background.

We are back in Beijing now. Went to dinner here one night. Pretty good Lebanese food.

Complete with belly dancers.

Audience participation is encouraged.

This picture is in the lounge at the hotel we stayed in - Kerry Centre Hotel. They brought this band (Big City Beat) in from Australia to celebrate the 7th anniversary of the club.

Pretty rough duty in Beijing. Somehow we made it through.
