Seems like I can get back to blogging and posting pictures again. My recent trip to Beijing with my parents gives me enough reasons, so does my new (second-hand actually) Nikon D700.

The magnificent Beijing train station - looking like a large futuristic army of fancy looking trains, steel structures, materials and massive spatial volumes. I recently went to Beijing with my folks who were incredibly impressed with this massive infrastructure that China has built over the last few years and that doesn't seem to stop anytime soon.

It has transformed peoples' lives, empowered them to travel quickly, spend more time with family, do business more efficiently and accelerate growth.

A very interesting article on this Chinese phenomenon: http://www.nytimes.com/2013/09/24/business/global/high-speed-train-system-is-huge-success-for-china.html?pagewanted=2&_r=0

Personally I think America needs to take back its power, too much has been abandoned !~
