View from Jingshan Park

Last weekend, I brought a dear friend to the hills of Jingshan Park. He asked me where to see sunset in Beijing and I couldn’t think of any but Jingshan Park, at the back of the Forbidden City or Gugong. And we were never disappointed.

It was a beautiful day. Beautiful, in the real sense of the word—which includes clear, blue sky in the entire city. One could gaze long and see the horizon visibly clear at the far distance.

Though we arrived around 6:00 pm, the sun was still on fire! We nestled ourselves in one of the open pavilions, sat and talked about his heartaches over his last boyfriend. You see, he came to Beijing to nurse a broken heart but I told him it’s not the place to mend a crushed heart! LOL…

So, here are the photos from the sunset.

The west of the Forbidden City. Notice the UFO-like architecture that looks different from the rest in the area? That’s the National Center for Performing Arts.

 The sun’s rays slowly turned the Forbidden City roof into gold.

Looka, looka, looka!

Oh, dude, there was noise pollution (from camera shutters) when this one appeared.

Another day ends and another one begins ….. somewhere….
