Beijing Bound

After spending the whole summer in Bali, we are off on a mini-break to Beijing to attend the opening of the exhibition celebrating Bvlgari 125 years of Italian Magnificence at the National Museum of China.  The 125 years was celebrated in 2009 with the opening of the exhibit in Rome which was followed in 2010, by an exhibit in Paris' Grand Palais.  The Beijing exhibit will run from September 4 to November 3, 2011 and will showcase all the iconic Bvlgari creations from 1884 up to the 21st century.  It's our first visit to China (not counting innumerable trips to Hong Kong) and we're looking forward to discovering a new city.  It will be interesting to say the least.  As Facebook and Twitter will be difficult to access, I'll be posting about our Beijing weekend when we get back.

Am envious, envious, envious. Will you have time to see the Great Wall?

I don't think so. We're going to try and squeeze in as much as we can in two days though.
