After a 10 hour flight from brussels (which I survived thanks to a Xanax and a glass of wine) Ceesie arrived in the capital city of China.
First impression: dirty, big and Chinese. Beijing is a strange city, not comparable to Tokyo, Hong Kong, Seoul or any other Asian city I've been to in the past. I had a free-time of 16 hours so I decided to use it wise. I arrived in Peking at 7 am and went straight for a typical dumpling breakfast. After I went to visit the forbidden city, did some shopping at Sanlitun, went for local chinese noodle soup and passed out like a baby in my hotel. The next day was working day for Ceesie. Shoot was long and hard, but a happy client as usual. All photoshoot fresh and only 4 hours left I went to one of the biggest fake markets in the world, where you can find anything you can possibly imagine. From fake Givenchy bags to the latest YSL shoes and from the most expensive fake rolex to the cheapest Hello Kitty gadgets. Ceesie all exhausted and overwhelmed from the fake shopping mania left Beijing in a weird but satisfied way.
