Visit to China – Chinese Grand Prix in Shanghai and Beijing

In April I travelled to China for a two week trip, which included attending the Chinese Grand Prix in Shanghai, visiting the Great Wall in Beijing as well as relaxing and taking in the environment and culture.

The Grand Prix was amazing and I even had a behind the scensles look at the McLaren garage.

After the Grand Prix weekend I flew to Beijing where I stayed at Hilton Beijing Wangfujing, a very good hotel and the room was excellent.

I visited the Forbidden City which absolutely amazing and full of significant history.

The Great Wall of China was an extremely inspiring part of my visit to Beijing. You’re on average 3,500 ft above the town below. The purpose of the wall being built is in itself very interesting.

After Beijing I then flew back to Shanghai for the weekend where I stayed at Hilton Shanghai.
The view from Hilton Shanghai at night was rather special.

Though in arriving at the airport the taxi queue was ridiculous.

I saw a couple of friends who were also in Shanghai and took in some of the iconic architecture of Pudong right next to the Bund.

Hello Again

It has again been a long time since I was on here, but I will now be updating it constantly.  The first thing I’ll do is share pictures that I’ve taken, some interesting ones from some of the places I’ve been recently: Germany, USA, Turkey, United Arab Emirates.

Here’s one to get started, from the Grammy Awards 2011.

Suge Knight, Ja Rule, Vanilla Ice, Tommy Lee

I just remembered today about some pics I came across of Suge Knight, Ja Rule, Vanilla Ice and Tommy Lee in the Foundation Room club in the Manadalay Bay in Las Vegas.  They look like they are all having fun!  Good to see them all getting along well!!!!
