Beijing Day 1

So here it is guys, photo number one from the China journey.

February 26th, myself and fellow classmate Dan Speer flew to Shanghai to intern at Time Out Shanghai. Our placement doesn’t start until March 7th, so we decided to start off our time in China with five nights in Beijing, to take in the sights and tackle some school assignments.

Day one in Beijing was spent exploring the surrounding area of our hotel (which used to be a university), the main road that our hotel faces is filled with street vendors selling meat and produce. The faces of the local people here are a photographers dream, so many stories lay behind those eyes.

The language barrier has been a bit of a challenge as many people do not speak any English and our Mandarin lessons do not begin until we are back in Shanghai.

Here is a photo from day one. More to come…
