Clear Days in Beijing

No doubt you've heard of Beijing's infamous pollution, and how on a bad day, you can't see very far through all the smog. Photos from Pipkin's first day in Beijing had some evidence of this phenomenon. But it's not always bad, and the thing about the smog in Beijing is, conditions can change rapidly. Today happened to be a clear day, and visibility was good. Walking around Beijing, Pipkin and Domo came across this green patch on a hill where they could look out over the city.

They climbed up the steps and hopped onto the wall. From there, they could see...a lot of cranes. Beijing is changing, and quite quickly, too. A clear day reveals a city of cranes, even here on the outskirts of Beijing. Don't blink! You won't see the same city twice.
