Mostly Everything

Holy Week Hiatus: Beijing

It’s that time of the year where most Filipinos pull themselves away from the computer and run to the beach. In our case, it’s Beijing! Here are some photos of the Great Wall, The Forbidden City, the Summer Palace and the lake surrounded by Beijing’s night life and alleyways.

On a related note, the Android version of Instagram was released early this morning. If you’re on Android, download it now!

Photos taken with Instagram for iOS. Follow me at @jayveef (not to be confused with my Twitter account which is @jayvee.

P.S. Got to experience first-hand the Great Firewall of China. Most blog services are banned (self-hosted WordPress is safe), Twitter + Facebook are blocked as well. If I wanted to post to Twitter or FB, I’d have to use apps like Instagram, Foursquare or Path as these are unblocked. Our local tour guide told us that she really doesn’t feel the need to use these anyway as none of her friends are in it. To her, the mobile phone is more important and China has gone a long way since.
