In mid-April, we had the extreme fortune to meet up with our friends, Karen and Jeff, in Beijing. They had been to Singapore and Hong Kong, and wound up their Asian tour with this city steeped in formidable history and modern chaos. Together, we visited the Summer Palace, the Mutianyu section of the Great Wall, many streets and several great restaurants. We had an amazing time and were so happy to spend it with Karen and Jeff. All of our Purdue friends should come visit! Here are just a few random pictures of our few days in Beijing, in no particular order.
