Picks of the pix
A weekend in Beijing spells an era of consumerism. The shopping mall at Wanfujing Street was packed with locals checking out the store front windows, and just generally hanging out. The city is beginning to come back to life now that a week has passed since the Olympics opened. This is the first time I've seen real crowds, but not for long and only at the malls and street markets. See photos I took on a Saturday afternoon jaunt through town.
