First Snow for 2012 Beijing

Facebooktwitterredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather
A lively Beijing winter! Today is January 07 and Beijing greets its first snowfall for 2012. At 7:30am as usual I start my 20-minite routine walk to my office. Out on our living block garden, I’m really surprised at the snowflakes flying and dancing in the air, small and white. So I take the lift up back to my flat and take my camera with me, grabbing some photos of the first snow 2012 in Beijing.
