With the Winter Olympics now in progress I have been thinking back to October 2001 when I visited a customer in Beijing. I had been teaching a course in Shanghai and the Service Manager wanted me to visit an important customer in Beijing while I was in China. I was able to fly up to Beijing on Friday afternoon and spend some time visiting historic sites and museums on the weekend before visiting the customer.
The pictures were all taken with an early digital camera that saved pictures on floppy disks, so they were not the best quality. You can also tell how long ago these pictures were taken as I look much younger in this picture taken at the Great Wall.
Someday I would like to go back to Beijing and visit some of these places again.
