Beijing then and now........

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Referral Group Incorporated

I took myself to Beijing for my fiftieth birthday. It was probably my first solo trip. I remember finding my way to the ballet all alone by walking there and simply asking for help. I got there and back. I learned to always have a card with the hotel name and address just in case i get in trouble.

So last night after a fourteen hour flight I was there again but it wasn't quite as dirty and the airport, bulit some five years ago was vast and gorgeous. Here are a few shots.

When you think about real estate, it is time to focus. I have helped people for close to thirty years in all areas, and made the process not only simple but enjoyable. Why should you go it alone or settle for less? Call me and find a partner to help, direct and get you where you want to be.

Sheila,

Thank you for sharing a glimpse of Beijing with us.  You reminded me of our first rip to Istanbul.  We landed on a soil tarmac, and our suiticases were put on talbes, and the custom officers put an X chalk mark on them meaning we could pass.  The plane was a PAN AM flight 1 which toured the world, then.  A

Hi Sheila,
Those long flights are grueling, unless you happen to be one of the lucky ones who can sleep on a plane. I'm not!  Glad you arrived safely.  Will be watching for more pictures and reports.

I love the stuffed bear, Sheila.  I had a friend who was among the first Americans to travel to China when we began warming relations with them.  The year was 1985.  He spoke about how few automobiles there were, and how most folks got around on bicycles.  He showed me pictures.  Then a few years ago, another friend showed me photos of their recent trip, 25 years later.  Bejing was a totally transformed city, not anything like it was in the first pictures I had seen.
