Tried to go to Summer Palace today and quickly realized that sightseeing during a Chinese holiday is a horrible idea (we get a week holiday for Chinese National Day). Thousands of Chinese tourist lined the streets and bike lanes were blocked with transport busses. So I noped right out of there and checked out Peking University campus, often referred to as Tsinghua’s rival. I’ve come to realize that trying to get a clear shot of anything in China is going to have random Chinese people in it. One of the many unwritten laws of living in Beijing.
