Please forgive the indulgence with these videos of my hotel in Beijing!  The place looks very elegant, but it's not a brand-new hotel; the moldings show some wear and there's rust on the sink drain.  The room is a nice size, though.  I can't get over the lobby!

Here's a few scenes from the Forbidden City.  Those grounds along with the adjacent Tiananmen Square with its museums and monuments cover a huge area.

The first two videos are from Country Kitchen, this fantastic restaurant at the Rosewood Hotel.  The last video is from an overpass on my way back to the hotel.

Here are some video clips of my first two nights in Shanghai; I slept in the whole day between.  Eh, it was overcast, anyway.  I'll keep busy the next three days!

These videos were all taken while on the Pudong side of the city.  The Pudong's not huge; you can walk across it in 15 minutes.  It's just amazing how many skyscrapers are within that area.

These clips were taken later in the afternoon while on the Bund.  A couple of the videos have the heavy wind blowing into the mic, sorry about that.

These two sets of videos were taken on February 1st, the day I returned to Hong Kong.  The second group shows my quick trip to Macau that afternoon.
