Beijing Olympic Park

We had five days with no classes leading up to and including the May Day holiday, so we took in some of the local attractions before it starts getting too hot in the city during the summer.

This is the start of what is called the Sunken Garden at the north end of the Olympic Park. It has a large underground mall.

This is a very big wind chime.

DJ was copying the girls dance moves.

These ducks seemed to be standing in the middle of the river. It is really a very shallow fake river that is on top of the mall.

We will have to come back another day to visit the Beijing Science and Technology Museum.

This is something new they are building at the north end of the Olympic Park at the entrance to the Olympic Forrest.

We made it to the end of the Oympic Park but never did make it very far into the Olympic Forrest. Again, we will have to save that for another day.

The kids were tired and we sent them home. This is a a very nice couple that approached us as we were walking to have dinner that evening. They are from Greece and had been in town on business but decided to take in some of the local sights. They were looking for a good place to eat and we went together to Tim's BBQ Tex-Mex. It was the perfect end to a perfect day.
