Beijing’s winter countryside

It’s still winter time in Beijing and when we got there last week, the temp was averaging a high of 5 degrees and a low of -3 degrees Celsius. Winter’s worst was over and it was getting warmer, the guide told us. The cold, dry winter was a welcome treat – tolerable and very much enjoyable!

We drove to Tianjin – China’s third largest city after Shanghai and capital Beijing, about an hour and a half drive from central Beijing. The winter view of the countryside – foggy landscapes, frozen waterways, and leafless deciduous trees along the expressway – was truly awesome. Here are samplers…
