This is my favorite picture of all the ones I took in Beijing. Because it captures the feel of Beijing. How international it is, how hip it is, how modern it is and how traditional it is.

The girl told me that she grew up in London and she was originally from HongKong. She was in Beijing for a short study program. The guy is from France I think.

Here we got two Europeans skateboarding in Hutong, the most traditional streets of Beijing. Western culture and Eastern culture have never been integrated so seamlessly and so romantically.
