Traveling The Globe Day #18

Time to travel again as we take to the airways on our way to Peking China. Wait there is no Peking today, or is there? The answer might enlighten one. The Chinese capital did not change its name but Chinese words became spelled in English differently. Sometime the 1980's the Chinese started to enforce its official name on all flights, sea routes, and official documents. This is why the name Peking is still echoing in ones minds and people continue to us even today. It might be easier to pronounce Beijing.
