Beijing highlights

I am back home, safe and sound, and ready to get back into the swing of things. My whole trip was pretty awesome. After my previous blog post, I went and explored Japan, well, really I only explore Tokyo and Kyoto (plus a day trip to Nara), but I feel that what I explored was enough to give me a nice feel for Japan, i.e. what it has to offer, the Japanese people, and the Japanese culture. I would have to say that the highlight of my Japan trip was looking out over Kyoto from one of the surrounding hills and watching the sunset (I got some great photos from here), that and the sushi breakfast I had in the Tokyo fish market (to put the quality of the sushi I had into perspective I'll use the words of the guy who was sitting beside me at the restaurant, "before this moment, its like I have never eaten sushi before").

I have been spending my time at home trying to slowly get back into things, one of the biggest tasks has been trying to edit and process all the photos I took on this trip...sometimes I miss using film cameras for this very reason. Long story short, I'm going to uploading my photos in segments. My first segment will be photos from Beijing...and....here they are...
