(reblog from 2015 for archiving) Snow in Beijing

First posted on TVG in China, 2015. I’m currently archiving old posts onto one blog.

I distinctly remember people getting angry at the decision for Beijing to host a winter Olympics, under the ground that there  is never snow there.

Well, as it happens, Beijing can get pretty snowy.

I used the snowy days as an excuse to go explore the Olympic Forest Park. As it happens, a fair few people desperate for making snowmen and snowball fights shared my thoughts.

I can’t believe I’ve never thought of using an umbrella for snow…I think it just emphasises how little we get in the south of England.

My lack of a working auto focus didn’t do me any favours on close-ups.
