Strangers in a strange land

2007 21 National Day Tianamen 013

We just got our first taste of being strangers in Beijing, as we went to Tianamen Square on "National Day", which is the beginning of "Golden Week" holiday (all week off for most).  Beijing is flooded with out of towners, many of whom who have apparently not seen much of foreigners before.  The boys were very popular, as we had a dozen or so requests for taking their pictures with the locals.  Here in this picture you can see a very happy chinese guy holding carlos up for his friends to take a picture of them together.  The boys got a little sick of it after a while, but cristina and I thought it was really cute.  There was massive number of people out, probably close several hundred thousand in the square if i had to guess.  Click here for full pictures.
