I snapped this photo from a taxi on my way to the Beijing airport after spending two weeks in China. It summarizes many of my observations from my first visit to China. The construction crane was one of dozens throughout the city highlighting the incredible pace of new construction. The satellite dish symbolizes the future. The bicycle light under the green traffic light shows that automobile traffic is out-pacing more traditional forms of transportation. The green light also symbolizes China's arrival as a global power and the rapid pace of its economy.
