Day 148 in Beijing: I Found The Tardis!

A red Tardis?  In China?  Yep, that makes sense.

If you were raised well, you know who Dr. Who is and why his story is so enjoyable.

He’s a sci-fi fan’s dream persona because he travels time, saves the world multiple times, and is somewhat dorky and geeky.  In a way, his eccentricity allows him to be the adventurer and world saver because he thinks outside the box.

Cool doorknob. Notice the receiver on the floor.

What more could a boy want?

Anyway, he travels in a time machine called the Tardis.

The Tardis is a classic British telephone booth that is painted blue.

At least on the outside.

However, when one steps inside, there is a bunch of gadgets and controls that allow Dr. Who to travel through time.

Well, this Tardis isn’t blue but I thought it was as close to any Tardis I will find in Beijing or China.

I love the reflection of the buildings in the background.

In a way, travelling to China, is my Tardis.  I’m travelling through time, space and dimension to a universe that I didn’t have any notions about or any real idea about before I arrived.

Hello, is it me your looking for?

If not for the job offer that I was given, I wouldn’t even be here now.  I’d be somewhere else.  Doing something else.  And probably not travelling the world, seeing things I couldn’t even imagine, or meeting people I’d never know.

Actually, I guess I’m my own Tardis.

To quote Doctor Seuss, “Oh, the places you shall go.”

Dr. Seuss was right.  As was Dr. Who.

Each day that I wake up, I’m more excited to discover the places I shall go.

You are welcome to come along and join me!
