Beijing – Part 2 – European Quarter / Tiananmen Square

Near the old French Post Office, Beijing

To continue this series on Beijing, I was amazed that the old buildings from when the European powers were here a hundred odd years ago, are still standing and looking good.  There was also a number of older, mature trees, that I didn’t see any where else in central Beijing.

Automatically, all seemed “different”, and “old” and more “European”!  In fact, it reminded me of home, in Glasgow.  So much so, that I automatically assumed, that there should be a pub nearby!

St Michaels Church, Beijing

From here, it was very short walk to Tiananmen Square, though it was approaching dusk, and the light was not good enough for more shots.
