Snowing Scenery in Tiananmen Square

According to the weather report, Wednesday is an ordinary day. Got up in early morning, I found it was snowing but it would not stop the journey to the museums in Beijing with my colleague - Shintia, and on the contrary, the snowy day made for the museum tour to know the other sides of Beijing.

When we arrived at Tiananmen Square by Subway Line 1, it snowed heavier and all square was covered by the white dress. Because of the snow, the transportation is not very well, and the traffic wardens still standing in the heavy snow and directed the traffic carefully. Standing before the National Museum of China, we enjoyed the Tiananmen Gate Tower from distance. It stands with the flowing pieces of snow, through the fuzzy distance, it seemed like the man was receiving the baptism in the white world and enjoy its baptism resolutely. The red flags still fly in air and showing their beauties to snow which is dance by their small bodies. Even in such day, the symbolized buildings all stand straight and witness the past time.

Tiananmen Square in White Snow

I considered that maybe rare people would visit this square in such snowy day, but the fact moved me deeply. Many travelers stay there took pictures to records the beautiful time in Tiananmen Square, they use their enthusiasm melted the cold temperature and snow. Casually, a person, jumped into my scene with an epoptic dress, who was cleaning the snow on the ground in order to protect the safety of tourists. All others were enjoying this exciting weather and play happily in this square, just the men who were clearing snow kept their posture and worked carefully. Every day, we need people like them to make the society more peace and harmony no matter rainy or snowy.

Discordantly, people in square always advise travelers to take pictures and add commercial aims into such harmony scene. Maybe someone needs their service, but what they do disturbed this peace picture. It is just the thought before we entering the theme. But it is really the expression of my emotion.
