Beijing felt like NK to me, cops even took my phone and deleted a video I took in Tiananmen square, ngl I was scared shitless, thought that they will send me to the west xD
I kinda get why they did it, but they felt very hostile. I was filming the guards changing ceremony, because I noticed some old lady filming it, so I thought that it was pretty cool and did it too, then they went straight to me and demanded my phone and even deleted it from the "deleted" folder. They didn't do anything to that woman btw. Kinda unfair. Nobody deleted my stuff when I filmed the same things in other countries, but as I said, I kinda get it, if those are the local rules, then it's ok (that woman should have gotten the same treatment tho).
