It was the last day of our holiday. We had checked out of our room but had an hour to wait before our coach collected us to take us to the airport. I went to stand on a street corner to watch the world go by.
Back in 2005, Katie Melua’s had a top 10 hit with the song.” There are nine million bicycles in Beijing.” I’m sure it is true. There are everywhere. Not just commuters but cyclists pulling heavy loads. A last chance for some photos.
My favourite is this last one that I call Taxi for One.
Look at the padlock on the door. No way is she going to leap out and do a runner!
It had been a memorable holiday. So different from anything I had done before.
