With the summer Olympics taking place in Beijing right now, I thought I'd share a few more China pictures with you. These pictures were taken in Beijing in the spring of 2007. Some depict the new, glitzy part of China, and others show a bit of how most of China really is. One thing that was amazing to me when I visited Beijing and Shanghai was how closely the glitz and the--well, you decide what to call it--stand together. You can literally take one step away from the glamour and be in the not so glam.
