I seem to have some problems posting photos. Kinda sucks because I have some great ones...
We went to Beihai Park today, and saw all the Beijingers (and some foreigners) skating on the frozen lakes. It was real pretty.
There are all manner of phatasmagoric contraptions for rent on the ice - ice bicycles and ice chairs for example!
The snow has stopped but it cleared the pollution through the week, so it this weekend was reasonably warm and sunny. The way a pleasant Beijing winter should be.
