Mid winter I was invited to Beijing University to give an academic talk and took this opportunity to get to know this beatiful and historical campus. To those who don’t know, Beijing University is among the best – if not the very best – of Chinese academia, and in my field they’re definitely on the rise in world academics. The campus, I must say, is definitely very special and with unique landscape and history.

Though it may seem like a warm sunny day it was actually between -10c and -15c. Freezing cold. I did pack to dress for cold, but nothing prepared me for how bad it was. Regardless of how many layers I wore it was cold. Perhaps after this long in the HK-Taiwan area my body just can’t the cold very well. But, cold weather and clear blue skies makes for some scenic photography, so the campus looked especially charming.

 

Take a walk with me through campus…

Not too far away is the lovely Tsinghua University campus and the Yuan Ming Yuan imperial gardens. Combine these to make a lovely day of explorations by foot.
