It's been a while since I was last in China; over a year now and I've recently found out a couple of friends will be heading to Beijing for a year, which is great as it's given me an excuse to return. I had a great time there and would really love to have the opportunity to move back and work over there.
You can't not go to Beijing and not visit the both the athletic and swimming Olympic Stadiums. They have been come a landmark themselves in a city that is populated with hundreds of thousand year old structures. I couldn't get enough of the colour and the texture of the water cube.
The stadium gets light up with the most fantastic blue lights - I couldn't stop looking at it throughout my entire stay.
