Travels: Beijing Walkabout

Made a business trip over to Beijing this week and managed to get part of Sunday off to roam a few of the famous places around town. Saw some of the Olympics mega buildings, including the yet to be completed CCBS building. This time at least I did not bother blogging on my Nokia E61 so I'm just going to post the photos here and put some comments on where its taken. Here goes:
