Some Miscellany from Beijing

We stayed at a very cool looking hotel in Beijing.  It was on a tiny side street, so you never would know it's there unless you were looking for it.

This was down the street from our hotel.  I laughed every time we passed it.

It was fun to see red lanterns lit up over restaurants at night.

In front of our hotel...again.

This was taken as we were getting ready to go to church.  There are actually 2 "foreigner" branches of the Church in Beijing.  It was so wonderful to be able to feel at home in a place that was so foreign in so many ways.
Quite possibly my very most favorite "translation" EVER!  
This is at the brand new terminal at the Beijing Airport that was built just for the Olympics.  How this slipped past befuddles me!  Aaron said that in Chinese it basically says to wait inside the box.  There were aisles delineated by tension barriers and this was the sign in front of it.  I laugh every time I see it!
