These spiffy videos posted on Vimeo by Albin Holmqvist have been spreading like wildfire throughout the blog world. They are various commercials for EF Language Schools, featuring some of the most beautiful cities in the world. The ode of the mighty Beijing is charming and lovely and reflective of some of my sunnier moments here in Beijing. It also makes me crave summertime and clearer skies. Blast this smog.
In any case, I hope you enjoy this little glimpse into this chaotic, rich city as much as I did. And practice reading your Simplified Chinese characters (I got about 85% of them! Woop!)
