In Photos: Tina’s Trip to Beijing, China

This Month, our Senior DTP specialist Tina Ji took a trip to Beijing China, where she is originally from. We asked her to take a few pictures of the things she did. Here are a few of the adventures she had:

Tina playing the Chinese game “Mahjong” at her brother’s house. This version of Mahjong is played with a table that automates the process. Mahjong is a game of skill, strategy and calculation. Go, Tina, Go!
Here we have a traditional Chinese dish, Stir fry eel with pork. A little spicy, Tina warns. When something on the Menu is labeled “Sichuan style” – it means spicy.
Tina goes for good old American fast food at a KFC in Beijing. She noted how the food was mostly the same with some local flair. The price for a bucket of chicken is nearly the same as in the U.S.
Tina at a KTV (karaoke television) singing “old Chinese songs” she says.
Street at the center of Beijing, at Chang'an Avenue (Eternal Peace Street) is Beijing’s most famous street, like the Champs-Élysées is to Paris. 
Tina at the pastry shop buying a birthday cake for her dad (who is turning 82 this year). Congrats Dad!
Just hop on the right bus number Tina says. But will it be that easy for those of us who don't speak Chinese?
Xinhuamen, the "Gate of New China" which serves as the central headquarters of the Chinese government. It's like the "Chinese White House" Tina says.
And last but not least, Tiananmen Gate, the gate to the Forbidden City.
Thank you Tina for sharing your experiences with us!
